Although Thunderbird is no longer part of Mozilla, Tbird "help" links to this list. I am using Ubuntu 22.04LTS current, but I do NOT use either Ubuntu .deb Tbird or Firefox, but load directly from Tbird or Mozilla. Under the web interface to gmail, both Google Chrome (google native) and Firefox show my folder list with Inbox on top. Tbird shows Inbox under the list of folders in alphabetical order and does not allow me to move it "up". Note that Tbird uses IMAP, not the web based interface. Why the difference?
