(Whiteboard: tpi:+)

It would be useful if we could support pinning individual uri (app tabs for example) to the taskbar independent of the main browser shortcut.

We already support individual group ids per window, but we lack ther ability to tie a particular window to a group id based on the uri the window displays. We also need to figure out how to tie the site's icon to a taskbar shortcut.

There are some issues to sort out revolving around what happens if the user navigates away from the site the shortcut launches as well.

This and Bug 596648 are essentially the same.  I'm not sure which should be duped to which.
Correction: This and Bug 582370 are essentially the same.

Isn't the following bug a duplicate of this one?

Is this bug specifically for pinning app-tabs (of limited usefulness), or does it cover the full functionality available in other browsers, like pinning by dragging .URL desktop shortcuts and bookmarks from the Library?
I apologize for the bugspam. I've misread the description. Clearly, the aforementioned bug is about pinning to the Firefox taskbar shortcut, while this is about pinning independent of it.
