Upgrade to 102.3 makes filters make messages disappear
After an automatic update to 102.3, my entire primary account was missing. As per https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1389116#answer-1537137, I downloaded https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird/candidates/102.3.0-candidates/build1/win64/en-US/Thunderbird%20Setup%20102.3.0.exe, and now the account is visible.
However, when I send a message to a certain recipient that triggers a filter that moves the message to a different sent folder, the message ceases to exist entirely. It is nowhere in the system to be found.

Update: also sending a message to myself, for which scenario no filter is specified, the message is not in the Sent folder. ????
Solution: the update or the fact that the entire main account went missing because of the update made it so that any messages I sent were no longer copied to the account's Sent folder but to the Local Folders' Sent folder, instead. And the local folders are something I don't normally use, so I didn't look there.
Also the views of each folder in the main account were reset to Thunderbird defaults.
A backup option for backing up the configuration of an account, including related filters, views and whathaveyous, would be appreciated for future upgrade-ups.
