    Are your accounts showing up as usual under "accounts"? (it's not shown in the picture) – Cmorales Feb 10 '12 at 23:50
  • I am on Thunderbird 9.0, IMAP, and my account GMail is showing under accounts. Still, I cannot access the Inbox, how do I do it? – Pomario Feb 13 '12 at 20:20

The only solution I found was to delete ~/.thunderbird
