User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:38.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/38.0 Build ID: 20150513174244 Steps to reproduce: 1. Create one or more pinned tabs. 2. Create two or more tab groups with one or more tabs. 3. Right-click on tab and move a tab to new window B. 4. Close window A 5. Close window B 6. Restart Firefox. Actual results: 1. When window B is created (step 3), pinned tabs should also appear. 2. Pinned tabs and tab-groups lost on restart. Expected results: 1. Pinned tabs should be shared across all windows (except private windows). 2. Tab-groups should be persistent across all restarts and not influenced by window close order; when shutting down a computer with FF running, could closes multiple windows in any order and so loose tab-groups. Commentary: I often have several tab-groups I keep for weeks/months. For a couple of years now since tab-groups where added I've been wondering how I keep mysteriously loosing my pinned tabs and tab-groups. It occurred often enough that I started backing up some technical tab-groups into bookmark folders just in case I lost tab-groups again. Tab-groups should not be tied to a window, but to session. Would allow moving any tab group to any window. Consider tab-group context menu items: - open group in new window - save group as bookmark folder; implementing tab-groups as bookmark folders would seem ideally.
Your bugreport is about 2 issues. In future, please file 1 report per issue. Having two issues in one report makes it hard to keep track of them correctly and confuses people that find a bug later and try to figure out what it's about / how to fix it. With that out of the way: 1) pinned tabs in Firefox aren't shared between windows. That's a conscious decision. Background is in bug 587873. 2) window close order and which windows are restored: if you want all your windows restored, use File > Exit when closing Firefox. Ideally, we should deal better with "detecting" whether you're closing all windows in a row in order to exit Firefox. That's bug 630775. In the meantime, you might be able to use History > Recently Closed Windows after the restart. This could be a dupe of both bug 587873 and 630775. I flipped a coin and picked the latter.
