Firefox shortcuts in new tab has disappeared

Over the past two days, I have found if I create a new tab, the shortcuts that I had saved on that page have all disappeared. Does Firefox keep a backup of these shortcuts? Unlike related support messages I've read, my bookmarks and bookmarks toolbar are unaffected.

These shortcuts (about 16 of them) took quite a while to accumulate, and it is frustrating to see that they can just simply disappear like that.

I am running Firefox 108.0.2 (64-bit) on Windows 10).

Keazen oplossing

Since all of those lost links were in fact pinned, I followed your second bit of advice and backed up *.pinned preference under about:config.

You can pin websites to tiles on the Firefox Home page to ensure that they aren't replaced.

You can possibly keep a backup of the browser.newtabpage.pinned pref on the about:config page to be able to restore pinned tabs.

Changes made manually on the Firefox Home page are stored in prefs that you can find on the about:config page.
