I am running Windows 7 home premium with Firefox Beta 20.0, a couple of months ago I pinned a website to my task bar. Last week I accidentally unpinned it. I tried repining it by drag and drop to no avail. I can do it under IE10. I figure if I could do it before and now I can't It was must have been removed . Why? sysinfo:

Add it to your bookmarks, then drag it to your taskbar.

The pinned tabs are a new feature, and I think are stored as part of the sessionstore information. It is possible to reset that but you will then loose all open tabs and any tabs groups.

As a first step make a note of or bookmark any important open tabs.


As an aside
Some mainly Windows 8 systems with radeon graphics are having Firefox crashes but obviously that is not affecting you.
