The inbox has a small arrow head if there is an unread message in it. How can I do the same with the spam/junk folders.

I find that a number of messages go to the spam/junk folder and are there for maybe a week or more before I check that folder I need something (maybe an add-on) to let me know if there are any unread messages in those folders.

First make sure that Thunderbird is not marking messages it moves to the Junk folder as "Read." Check under menu path Tools->Options->Security->uncheck "Mark messages determined to be Junk as read" if it is so marked now.
