Try logging in to the Gmail web interface, and check:

- Does the Gmail web interface show the same emails in your inbox as
  Thunderbird shows you?

- Ditto for spam/junk/trash?

- Ditto for any other relevant folders/tags?

- Have you set (and perhaps forgotten about) any Gmail filters that
  might be relevant?

- Gmail's recommended IMAP2 (or POP3, if you are using that)
  configuration: confirm that this is what your Thunderbird instance is

Also check:

- Is your Thunderbird up to date?  Does the version you are running have
  any known bugs causing mail to be lost/hiddden?

- Do you have any plugins/settings in Thunderbird that could be causing
  the issue?

- Is your Thunderbird mailstore on a healthy filesystem on a healthy

Hopefully these checks will locate the issue.

In the long run, the sensible solution would probably be to move away
from dubious proprietary email providers like Gmail (and Microsoft, etc)
to someone a bit more trustworthy, like Posteo.de or RiseUp or (if you
want to use your own domain) perhaps Migadu.com or Mailbox.org .
