App tabs lost after shut down and I have to redo them after every shut down any idea as to why they dissappear?


I use the app tab feature. After I have made the app tabs they disappear when I reboot the computer after shut down. So each time I have my frequently use sites as app tabs they disappear after shut down and reboot? Any Ideas as to why? I use Firefox 5, on a Windows 7 Home Premium machine. I use the addon "Too Many Tabs" would that conflict with the "App Tab" feature?

More Information

I can't tell you anything other than the app tabs disappear after shut down and then when I boot back up they are gone.

There are definitely work arounds that can help, however, why should a user have to jump through hoops just to keep a feature persistent?

The bug needs to be fixed...  :)

I have a Toshiba Satellite L775, with Windows 7 Home. Each time I shut down, rather than go into sleep mode, I lose Firefox - get message that the shortcut links don't work do I want to delete them. I've tried reinstalling both from files on computer, and the internet. I've used different versions, including latest v12. Problem remains.

Firefox has begun to suk. This bug has been with us for months. There is a problem with loading Google mail contacts in firefox...... 'After years with firefox I am going to look at some other browsers.'
