Thunderbird 91.4.0 (Mac) downloading 3 emails at a time

I'm having an issue with messages downloading to my inboxes over the past week or so...

Emails are not downloading automatically and loading to my inboxes. When I click the "Get Messages", only 3 emails at a time are being downloaded. I have restarted Thunderbird as well as my computer and neither have made any difference. I have not had an issue until recently - all emails were downloading without any manual intervention.

The server settings for my gmail accounts are: -, port 995 - check for new messages at startup - check for new messages every 5 minutes - automatically download new messages - leave messages on server

Has anyone experienced this issue? If so, what did you do to resolve? If there's any additional information I can provide, please let me know.

Thanks in advance.
