I used the default settings Mozilla gave me to upload my existing emails. But Mozilla truncated them, eliminating th emost recent and keeping only old ones I no longer care much about. I need to correct this if possible. I would appreciate any help available.

I am really confused. Your title is asking how to get Mozilla to show all of your email backlog. Just to clarify, Thunderbird is an email client that you can use to access your email. The instructions to set up an existing email account is in the Automatic Account Set Up

If you have an existing Thunderbird profile Profiles - Where Thunderbird stores your messages and other user data

There is an option to add a New or Existing account. However if you already have your account set up you can check the Synchronize and Storage Settings and check the Advanced tab to download all of the folders from the server. Depending if it is a POP3 or a IMAP the mail server may or may not have saved the emails on the server. Please talk to your mail provider about this.
