User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:13.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/13.0.1
Build ID: 20120614114901

Steps to reproduce:

Firefox still crashes too often. In those cases often (but not always) the Pinned AppTabs are lost upon recovery of the session. 

Actual results:

They serve as my homepage, but are NOT included in the Options > Homepage box.
Since I have about 20 of them pinned, it is a lot of work to re-enter all the home page websites one by one, pin them again. 

Expected results:

Well, three things:
1. Firefox should not crash (that often)...
2. Upon a crash the Pinned AppTabs should be recovered if I use the session recovery feature
3. The Pinned AppTabs should also be mentioned in the Options > Homepage box, for easy reconstruction in case of unexpected trouble - and to copy/paste a long list of home page tabs into another computer (since sync can not do that)

Thank you for taking time to report this.
Are you still able to reproduce this in the latest version ? Can you give more detail on how to reproduce ?

Hi reporter,

I haven't managed to reproduce this issue on the latest release(44.0) nor latest Nightly(47.0a1). The pined websites were in their place.

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:44.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/44.0
Build ID: 20160123151951

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:47.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/47.0
Build ID: 20160129030206

Can you please try to reproduce this on the latest release(44.0) and latest Nightly(47.0a1) and provide the results? When doing this, please try to reproduce with a new clean Firefox profile, maybe even in safe mode, as some of this issues may be caused by third party installed add-ons or custom settings(

Considering the fact that I and Paul (@comment 2)cannot reproduce this and the fact that the reporter did not answer to our requests until now, I will mark this as resolved-worksforme.
If anyone can still reproduce it, feel free to reopen the issue and provide more information.
