Pinned tabs disappear

Posted

So I just create a coupla pinned tabs in my iMac. I opened another window and there are no pinned tabs included.

--are pinned tabs only available on the one window in which you establish them?

--I've seen elsewhere the implication that if one closes the window with the tabs and then quits they will be gone when one restarts. True?

Yes, pinned tabs are restricted to the window in which you create these pinned tabs. Each window can have its own set of pinned tabs. To make sure that you do not lose pinned tabs, you need to quit the Firefox application when the window with the pinned tabs is still open.

Well that's too bad. On Safari the pins automatically show up on any new window. Plus you can close windows on quitting and they'll still come up upon relaunch.
