If you do not keep pinned top sites then there is possibly a problem with the prefs.js file that stores the preferences.

Hi jpauley85, was that the only change you noticed after the update?

As noted earlier, pinned sites are stored in the prefs.js file in your profile folder. If that file is locked or corrupted, perhaps that would cause a problem adding new pinned sites?

If you haven't already, could you close out of Firefox and do a normal Windows shutdown and restart to complete any pending updates and release any file locks.

Hi jpauley85, what method are you using to add a site? For example, the ••• menu button at the right end across from "Top Sites" or some other way.

Are you losing any other settings between sessions?
