Congrats :-)
    In Thunderbird open your address book and go to tools and then 
export, note the import option is right above it for after 
re-installation. For Firefox click bookmarks, then organize bookmarks. 
 From here click file and then export making note that the import option 
is right above it. Hope this helps.
