Why does a group of App Tabs used as home page "double" when Firefox is re-started?

I'm using Firefox 4, and have set a group of tabs (some pinned using App Tab, others as normal tabs) as my home page.

When I start Firefox, the tabs pinned using App Tab appear twice, as a pinned tab and as a normal tab.

Is there a setting I'm missing? Is it possible to have a group of pinned tabs + regular tabs as initial page?

Check your startup options under General . It's possible that your home page is set to open the tabs you have pinned. If that's the case, you can either change the option under "When Firefox starts:" or change your home page. Give it a shot, it worked for me :)

The problem is that if you have, say, three pinned app tabs set as the home page, most (but not all) of the time when FF4 starts, it'll open up SIX tabs, the original three PLUS three identical (but unpinned) tabs. Personally, I have five, so my FF4 starts with TEN tabs - not what I want.

If I unpin the tabs, FF4 behaves as expected.

It happens with Ubuntu as well as Windows versions.
