Safari top sites not updating
You can always get ‘Top Sites’ back and visible again by selecting it in the same preference panel of Safari, however.
They include Bookmarks, Top Sites, Favorites, Reading List, and Pinned Tabs.
How do I disable the auto-updating of the Top Sites in Safari?
I don't want to turn the feature off altogether, I just want to prevent auto-update.
Though Safari makes a perfectly great default choice, Chrome and Firefox are also excellent, and each app may perform differently depending on the given site or web experience.

This can make for a nice home page, but sometimes it will display sites you don’t want showing up, and it can also slow down Safari on older computers.
It has nothing to do with showing you if there have been changes to the page or not.
I'm having the same problem with the Top Sites thumbnails not updating themselves (without having to manually visit the site).
I forget if it coincided with updating Safari to 4.0.5 or not; it seemed like it was right around that time.
However, this solution might not completely address your original question - I haven't found any solution that could turn-off auto-updates of Top Sites, either completely or selectively for certain URLs/domains.
