When I pin a tab, it immediately disappears; how do I find it?

Posted

As soon as I click on 'Pin Tab,' the tab disappears. I don't know where it goes or how to find it.

I must be doing something wrong. There is nothing in my upper left corner regarding pinned tabs that I can find. When I then close Firefox and reopen it, there is still nothing there and the tabs I pinned do not seem to show up anywhere.

If you use one of the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl 1 to Ctrl 8 to reach the first eight tabs does that work?

You can try to open a new window to see if it work better in that new window.
