    This option seems to be disabled accidentally so i would suggest you to enable this feature once again on your Internet explorer 8 browser. Try the ctrl + Q after opening the multiple tabs this should enable the option for the most visited website on your browser this worked in internet explorer 7. Hope this will fix the issue.

    It appears as you have deleted the history or the internet explorer browser settings have been changed. After the deletion is completed the internet explorer browser will collect the data once again and once the data is collected it will show the most visited sites whenever you open a new tab.

    Try to use a different browser like the Mozilla Firefox there are a number of bugs associated with the Internet explorer which are yet to be resolved i think that's why it will be better to use the Firefox instead of the internet explorer it also has a number of add-ons which provides a good flexibility and will definitely enhance your browsing experience.

    Your browsing History will continue to show up under the address bar as a part of the IE8's AutoComplete feature. If your cannot see that than you may need to enable that feature. Follow these instructions. Internet Explorer will automatically fill in the URLs you frequently type into The Address Bar.

    1.Open Internet Explorer .

    2.Click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.

    3.Click the Content tab.

    4.Under AutoComplete, and then click Settings.

    5.Select or clear the Address bar, Forms, User names and passwords on forms, and Ask me before saving passwords check boxes.

    6.Click OK , and then click OK again.

    This should display your browsing history in the address bar as an AutoComplete Drop down.

    Best
