Well pinning a tab will make it stay there on reboots and it doesn't show a close button on the tab when you select it. You still can right-click on the tab and close it though. Are you looking for something more than this?

There is always an undo possible if you accidentally close a tab unless you use Private Browsing mode.
Pinned tabs won't last a session in PB or if you clear the history when you close Firefox.

you probably miss the tmp function "lock tab" - there exist no replacement as webextension.

Yes please.

Would this help? Can be configured either just for the last closed tab or a user-set number, in the same way as in TabMixPlus. Works in 57+.
