It would be nice if I could drag and drop the top level folders of each mail account in Thunderbird  in the LHS panel, because I cannot remember if they just appear in the order in which I created them, but however that order is selected, it doesn't appear to be subject to user modification, and I am going through the process of updating websites and creating new ones and creating new emails, and I need to have them in a logical order, and preferably even be able to group them by domain, so that I can have the most minimal view on the LHS but then open a domain, and see all the email addresses in that domain in the order in which I want them to appea

Great idea, I would also like to change the order of these folders. Doesn't have to be domain specific for me. But would be great to just drag and drop them around so I won't have to scroll anymore for my newest account.

Another instance of asking for what already exists.

  1. Go to account settings.
  2. Drag the accounts into the order you want them to be in the list on the side.
  3. Restart Thunderbird.

Done

It is true that reordering in Account Settings is possible.  But the reporter @GalacticPrez is expecting this in the folder pane. Lack of discoverability is partly to blame for such expectations, which is https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1814778

With reordering possible in Account settings, I would not expect ordering in the folder pane to be considered any time soon.

Lack of discoverability is a bug. I've been looking for (and expecting to find) this functionality in the folder pane as well. It's the natural place to expect to be able to do it. It's incredibly non-obvious to have to go into Account Settings to change it.
