I have restored all my backed up E-mails folders. Why are they not displayed in Thunderbird?

In Thunderbird a folder is assigned to each E-mail account and all E-mails corresponding to this account are stored under this folder. This folder can be viewed under the Menu Extras/Accounts/...

For you to be able to view a folder in the folder structure, an account that saves its E-mails under this folder must exist. After the restoration, always make sure that there is an account that exists which stores all its E-mails under this folder.
