One reason for switching to Firefox is that too many websites do not

give you the option to "Continue anyway". The other is that there are
far more addons, plug-ins and themes available for Firefox.
Install Thunderbird before you uninstall SeaMonkey (they can be used in
parallel) and it should offer to import all of your data. While you are
at it, why not give SeaMonkey 2.0rc2 a try?
Even if I do stick with Seamonkey (which isn't entirely out of the
question), I _must_ uninstall my current version first to eliminate some
version conflicts which occurred with my last upgrade attempt. I assume
that this will wipe out all of my e-mail, personal data, etc., so the
question remains: What do I need to backup, and how do I restore it so
the new installation uses it?

When you uninstall SeaMonkey, it remove only the program components. All
your e-mail, settings, etc. are kept in your profile, which isn't removed.
Accurate but probably NOT useful ;/
I suspect what the OP was trying to ask was "How does he move to
Firefox seamlessly?" A better phrasing would be "How do I turn
off SeaMonkey and turn on Firefox without noticing the difference?"
I'll soon post a similar question in making what *I DEFINE* as a
"safe" transition from SM 1.x to SM 2.? .
