Pinned tabs are considered as part of the browsing history. A detail like a website remembering you (log you in automatically) is stored in a cookie, so you need to keep these special cookies.


In case you use "Clear history when Firefox closes" or otherwise clear history.

  • do not clear the Browsing History
  • do not clear the Cookies
  • do not clear the Site Preferences
  • clearing "Site Preferences" clears exceptions for cookies, images, pop-up windows, and software installation and exception for password and other website specific data
  • clearing "Cookies" will remove all selected cookies including cookies with an allow exception you may want to keep

Thanks for helping! The problem was in "sync settings" I had an options on my phone selected to delete everything, though on pc these options were disabled. Turnin off synch of settings helped here!
