Speed Dial gives me a XML Parsing Error: no element found

Posted

Have set up Speed Dial, and also set it as home page. But when I next open Firefox, Speed Dial does not work and I get: XML Parsing Error: no element found Have retried reloading Speed Dial twice and this happens every time. I'm running Firefox 3.6.16.

Thanks very much for responding to this. The article seems to cover it exactly. Luckily, the problem went away on its own after a couple of days. Maybe McAfee did an update.
