Speed Dial has stopped working properly - lost all my groups

Hi all - I'm using Firefox 15.0.1 on a Win XP (SP 3) computer. All was working normally, and suddenly I lost the vast majority of my Speed Dial groups. Those that remained seemed random, and I have also lost the ability to edit either the individual Speed Dial entries, or the Groups themselves.

I've tried both removing Speed Dial, and Firefox itself, and then re-installing both. Doesn't help - I can't edit an entry in a group, nor create a new group - both of which I was previously able to do - and can still do on another Win XP computer.

If I right click in the Speed Dial (Group 1 tab) window on a properly working XP computer, I get the following options:

  • Open all in new tabs
  • Refresh all dials
  • Edit group
  • Speed Dial options

When I right-click in my newly funky Speed Dial window on my main computer, I get:

  • Back/forward (greyed out)
  • Reload
  • Stop (greyed out)
  • Bookmark this page
  • Save page as
  • Send link
  • Select all
  • View page source
  • View page info
  • inspect element

So my questions are:

  • Is there any way to recover my lost Groups?
  • is there some way to back up the Groups if I reconstruct them?
