"This isn’t anything new

The feature isn’t new by any means, dating back to 2014. As often is the case, some Redditors found the function and posted about it both in 2017 and today. In its current form, the feature only prevents thumbnails/tiles for adult sites appearing in the Top Sites and Highlights sections of the new tab page of the Firefox browser."
