You can try to export the data you care about, then uninstall PB, wipe
the my-piggy-bank directory in your profile, reinstall PB, and then
import the data back in.

After you uninstall PB, you need to reset a flag so that when you
reinstall it, it re-initializes itself again. This can be done by
browsing Firefox to about:config, and filter for "piggy", then reset the
PB version number.
