So you started both SeaMonkey and Firefox which created new profiles for
each without any information?
Yes. Neither has anything of any importance except for a few settings which are easily recreated.

You could create new profiles. I always use the default location.
I really want them on a different drive with all the rest of her personal stuff.

For Firefox

For SeaMonkey <http://www.seamonkey-project.org/doc/profiles>

2) After the profiles on the new machine are moved, I propose to copy

It should. Make backups in case that doesn't work.

Probably not. Make backups.

I have backups of the old profiles.
