According to this source, Gmail uses a special implementation of IMAP. In this implementation, Gmail labels become Thunderbird folders. When you apply a label to a message in Gmail, Thunderbird creates a folder with the same name as the label and stores the message in that folder. Similarly, if you move a message to a folder in Thunderbird, Gmail will create ...

Same here and it's not a bug. It's the normal behavior, if you installed Thunderbird via package manager (apt). In this tab you configure whether Thunderbird automatically checks for updates. Since the package manager (apt) takes care of updates, this tab is empty. And it makes no sense to use this tab, as Thunderbird doesn't runs with sudo rights and ...

I had the same problem, but with my contact sync. Turned out the problem was using the outdated add-on "Google Contacts" (last updated in 2013) to sync my gmail-contacts, which failed since google changed its API.
