There are a lot of things not restored when exiting Private Browsing (well - that's the point of it), but is that an argument for disabling it? 

Why shouldn't a user who is accustomed to working with app-tabs, tab groups etc be able to feel like home while working in private mode?
Hi Thomas,

I've always used (and use) my browser in Private Browsing mode. Even if I pin a tab as an app tab, the next time I launch my browser (in private browsing mode), it is not going to be there. Hence the request to disable the option in private browsing mode.

Apologies if my description has confused you. I've edited it to "Disable pinning an app tab during private browsing"

Pinning private browsing now works as expected.
