Is there a good way to make bookmarks, address book and calendar all server-based, secure, synched and simple?

I'm behind the learning curve on modern methods and still using a home PC with external hard drive for back ups. I've upgraded email to IMAP so messages are server-based but address book is not. I have been using Thunderbird and Firefox for years. Moved from MS Office to Libre Office more recently and find that good too.
My PC is a Windows7 laptop backed by an old XP desktop. I'm now thinking of moving from XP to Linux soon and getting first smartphone in near future. Hence I would like to use all of Win7 laptop, Linux desktop and smartphone for emails, calendar and web without the pain of backing and synchronising three different m/c frequently and manually. This must be so common a requirement that it must be possible - probably a choice of several ways but I don't really want to get locked into one at the expense of freedom of choice and functionality.
Recent upgrade to Thunderbird with Lightning has made me realise that the calendar and events would suit me fine and I wish to use them but only if always accessible and secure against loss. Then I can safely drop my paper diary and kitchen calendar!
Will be most grateful for help. I'm a competent and capable but ignorant home user!

I've used Thunderbird probably for as long as it's existed and I have never found another email client that I like better or even as well. But it freezes on my PCs. This started a couple years ago and I thought it was my computer (desktop PC). Then it also began on my PC Laptop. I wondered if the problem happened after an update, but was unable to target the exact date to try to link it to an update. 2 years ago I added a Mac Air to my computers, installed Thunderbird and it has worked without a hitch...same email accounts, same settings, same everything. It gets so bad on my PCs that it freezes everything on the computer and I have to walk away until it unfreezes, then I go to online access for my email accounts...which I don't like.
Why OK on Mac but not PCs?
