saved passwords in seamonkey can be imported to firefox.
I can import cookies and bookmarks from seamonkey to firefox.
Having firefox-3.1-0.6.beta2.fc11.x86_64, seamonkey-1.1.14-2.fc11.x86_64, and xulrunner-1.9.1-0.7.beta2.fc11.x86_64 I cannot reproduce this issue. I removed whole ~/.mozilla directory and started seamonkey. Then I have opened seamonkey and browsed to two sites which require authentication (web admin tool for ejabberd in LAN, and bugzilla.redhat.com). Then I have killed seamonkey and started firefox. That asked automatically whether it should import stored content from Netscape, Mozilla 1.* etc. I clicked yes, and both passwords for both sites were stored, history was present, and cookies were visible as well.
Please, provide us with more information about how to reproduce this issue, otherwise I will have to close this bug as unreproducible.
closing as WORKSFORME.
