It’s been sitting like that1 for months. My work machine populates them fine.

Edit: Google Chrome Version 4.0.249.892

Edit 2: (Possibly related) Chrome is not storing any history

1 I even tried clicking Restore all removed thumbnails
2 Updated to 4.0.249.89 just now. Previous build was 78.

How to solve :

I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.

Method 1

Chrome not storing history is the problem, the most visited websites are based on how often they come up in your history. If you are intentionally blocking chrome from storing your history then try turning your history on and visiting the sites you want on the new tab page then turning it off again(I do not know how to turn it on or off on command). If its unintentional then it seems like that would be your main problem.

Method 2

  • Go to Settings, in Google Chrome.
  • Then, click on Show advanced settings.
  • At the very end, you will see Reset browsing settings.

Click on that: it will change to the default settings, but hey, it will also clear your browsing history and disable extensions. For extensions, you can enable it again if you have installed them like ad block plus or any other.

Hope that answers your question.

Method 3

I encountered a similar issue. I turned off the”show trending searches” and my Frequently Visited sites returned. Right under the Google Search Box is where the Trending Searches was appearing and to the right of that was the “dots bar” giving the option to turn off Trending Searches.

Method 4

just uninstall and reinstall Chrome
100% fixed
tried and tested

Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
