Per subject, as of writing, To doesn't restore tabs as pinned (if they were previously pinned).
It is by design. When TO moves or restore pined tabs it unpin them. Restoring tabs as pinned have some far-reaching drawbacks, as they are moved by chrome to be the first tabs in the tab strip and have some other special behaviors The best solution I found after long experiments, to numerous problems, is simple unpin tabs upon restore. Maybe need put this in option actually. Yet I am not sure it is so critical to do anything about this. If there was many votes for this I will add such option.Personally i never use pined tabs so i even unsure how people are using them and in what practical scenarious.
Thanks for the info, some things to note about pinned tabs
I'd love to have the tabs remember their pinned/normal status. Some tabs in each window I open are always pinned because I always need them to be open. Rest of the tabs come and go.
