so I can't use pinned tabs as start-up pages?

I seem to have unexpectedly discovered a limitation to the "Use Current Pages" option that is available for one's home page selection. This interesting curiosity evidently affects any browser using some Mozilla code, because I tried it in Firefox with the same result.

I clicked Use Current Pages, and of the 5-7 tabs I had up, Pale Moon put in only the un-pinned ones. The obvious solution that I found is, of course, to unpin all the pages. That allowed Use Current Pages to successfully capture all of them.

Pinned tabs are always loaded so it doesn't make sense to use them in the "home page" section since then you'd effectively be loading them twice on startup.

As a workaround, you can manually enter the same pages instead of using the button. If you do this, the website will be loaded once in the pinned tab, and once in a normal tab for your home page. So you can have the same website as your homepage and as a pinned tab, but you cannot have your homepage tab also be a pinned tab, which might be what you're wanting. The reason it's excluded by default is to prevent it from being loaded twice, because that's not what most people want.
