'Show' in tasks space does not filter the Tasks view.

I am syncing over my Google Tasks into Thunderbird and for some reason whenever I try to use the 'Show' radio button in the Tasks space, it does not change the task view for 'Current Tasks', 'Today', 'Next Seven Days' etc. The expected behavior is that whenever I select 'Today' I am only going to view Tasks that are due 'Today'. Similarly, if I make a selection for 'Next Seven Days' - I expect to only see Tasks that are due within the next seven days.

As of right now whenever I make these selections, I still see all of my tasks in view some of which go into January and April next year.

The only selection that seems to actually filter the view is 'Not Started Tasks', 'Overdue Tasks', 'Incomplete Tasks' and 'All'. These will all filter the view -> showing past completed tasks, those that are over due etc.

I'm also wondering if there is a way to only see tasks that are due on the current day whenever I am looking at the 'Today' pane. That's a separate ask/issue though.

Any help greatly appreciated!

As you can see in my screenshot, I have the 'Today' radio button selected and tasks that are due well past the current date are shown in the view.
