Pinned Tabs disappear , help please

I just started using pinned tabs like 2 months ago and LOVE them. Today I get on and poof all of my pinned tabs are gone! I haven't done anything different so I don't understand why. I try to re-pin them but as soon as I close firefox they are all gone again.

Can someone please help me? I am very sad right now.

Re: Pinned Tabs disappear , help please

App (pinned) tabs and Tab Groups (Panorama) are stored as part of the session data in the sessionstore.js file in the Firefox profile folder.

Make sure that you do not run Firefox in permanent Private Browsing mode.

It is possible that there is a problem with the files sessionstore.js and sessionstore.bak in the Firefox Profile Folder.

Delete the sessionstore.js file and possible sessionstore-##.js files with a number and sessionstore.bak in the Firefox Profile Folder.

Deleting sessionstore.js will cause App Tabs and Tab Groups and open and closed (undo) tabs to get lost, so you will have to create them again (make a note or bookmark them).
