App-tabs are considered part of browsing history so you must save your browsing history for app-tabs to work. Tools > Options > Privacy you must have "Remember my browsing history" and in Settings where check marks mean to clear things you must leave unchecked "Browsing history". Annotated picture:

Another way to lose your app-tabs is not closing Firefox properly. To properly close Firefox use File>Exit or Firefox button > Exit not the "X" in the upper right corner. Because the "X" closes the Window. You should be able to pick it up though from History Menu ("Alt+H") > Restore Previous Session > followed by Restore closed (all/selected) windows.
