Saving settings

My present Thunderbird is running very slow, so I would like to try and download a new version (mine may be corrupt?), would I have to save all my current settings? Writing them down is a big hassle.

How about all my email contacts? Would they all be wiped out by a new Thunderbird?

Thank You!
