One of the interesting features of the upcoming Firefox 4 is App Tabs. This feature allows users to put permanent tabs for frequently used websites on the tab bar.
However, at present App Tabs are not fully implemented into Firefox (expected to be released with final version), so there is no way to preserve the app tabs in Firefox 4 (beta 2), though you can make it.
But, still there is a way to save the app tabs in Firefox 4.0 Beta 2 via the session restore feature of Firefox. Here is how to do.
