On one email account I have, when I open the trash folder the trash appears for a fraction of a second then disappears off the screen, is there a fix for this. Two other accounts work just fine.

How is the account set up in Thunderbird, as POP or IMAP?

If you log into that AOL account using the browser, what is the name of the folder to which messages are moved when you indicate they are to be deleted?

When I open mail and delete what I don't want it goes to trash folder. Then I right click on it and it has drop down box with option to empty trash, but I always double check to make sure there is nothing that went to trash that I want to keep. Suddenly when I open trash to check it will not stay on screen for more that a fraction of a second.

I seem to have got it working right now. I clicked the trash folder properties and it had a "fix folder" option . I clicked that and it seems to have solved the problem !
