I am looking for an add-on for thunderbird that syncs up all my settings, filters, and folders across multiple computers. I know there is the dropbox way but that way is only available for me to have one instance of thunderbird open at a time.
Suggestions?

Not sure if I understand your use case but I think you'll only be able to do what you describe if you are using an IMAP account and run Thunderbird Portable from a flash drive.

There is no functionality for Thunderbird that is comparable to Firefox Sync to duplicate settings and extensions between computers.
