User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:2.0b11) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0b11
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:2.0b11) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0b11

I define FF to start with the tab of the last session.
As firefox starts it start with the apps tab from last session,
but it is not refreshed - meaning if it was the CNN site u'll get the news of yesterday.

i think apps tabs should behaive like the old tabs of FF3.6 and the user  should not hit the refresh button in order to start.

I've tested this issue on a new, clean, fresh profile - it happend with all my profiles.
here is the about:support of the profile (FF4.0b11 He-IL):

So actually you're asking for App Tab's Content not to be Session saved.
What about User Input, Scrolling State etc. what usually also gets restored?

I wish apps tabs to act as a regular tab.
It is nice to have my favorite tabs to be shrink as a pin tab but I think it should behave first of all as a tab.

It is likely that this bug is the same as Bug 645549.
No, it's different. While bug 645549 is about not changing the URL this bug is about refreshing the page which was open before closing Firefox.
