Just open about:config in the URLbar
filter for general.useragent.override (if it doesn't exist, create a new
string with this name and give it the following value (one line):
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; de-AT; rv:
Gecko/20090825 SeaMonkey/1.1.18 NOT Firefox/

Websites Filtering for Firefox will detect their beloved Firefox at the
end and smart people can still see your using Seamonkey.

SM won't reach all of them, but compatibility for SM2 is much higher

Install SM2 to a new dirctory. On the first start it will offer you to
import your data and create also a NEW profile with it.
If everything is fine you can uninstall SM1 and delete the SM1 profile
if you wish.

If you still want to get your hands on the prfile data by hand:


PS: when adding that "NOT Firefox"-thing to the new SM2 I would
recommend to use "NOT Firefox 3.5.4" at the end instead of FF2
