Download firefox, install firefox, and start browsing and see if you like this alternative browser.
"What do I need to do to change to Firefox."
No, the installation and usage of firefox is independent of internet explorer 8. All you are doing is giving yourself an additional browser to use.
"Will I lose my bookmarks & all the stuff I have with IE8?"
No, the installation and usage of these browsers is independent. You need to keep internet explorer always for downloading Microsoft updates. Firefox would just be a second browser which may or may not become your default browser depending upon whether you like it or not.
Do I need to uninstall IE8 first than install Firefox.
I always do a backup when installing an unfamiliar program, but that's really an individual preference.
What is the best way?

The Firefox Import Wizard will import all of your Internet Favorites, Cookies, Passwords, Browsing History, Saved Form History, and Internet Options from Internet Explorer, Opera, and other browsers so you do not have to worry about losing anything when you switch to Firefox.

Web of Trust warns you about risky websites that try to scam visitors, deliver malware or send spam. Protect your computer against online threats by using WOT as your front-line layer of protection when browsing or searching in unfamiliar territory.

I would keep using Internet Explorer as it is safer than Firefox.

But the chance of people without computer knowledge knowing about and using those tools? Basically none.
