All Gmail folders are not showing up for 2 accounts

Hi, I've switched to Thunderbird from Outlook, and so far so good. However there's one thing I'm not sure how to resolve, and hoping someone can tell me how to fix it. I have 4 Gmail accounts configured in TB, and they all work perfectly fine. For 2 of them, I see all folders from Gmail, including Spam, Trash, Unread, etc., however in the first 2 that I had added I only see the standard 4: Inbox, Sent, Outbox and Trash. How do I make sure all folders (including Spam) are shown for the first 2 accounts? Thank you.

Follow-up: I read this article this article, however the UI shown in the steps on how to subscribe to folders does not match what I'm seeing at all. I'm on Windows 11. Is there an updated version of this help page?

N.B. I do have the Subscribe option on the 2 accounts that are showing all folders. Is this a POP/IMAP issue, do you think?

Thanks, I kind of figured that after I posted this question by comparing the account setups in TB.
