I'd have to boot into windows to see the difference - perhaps you can
post a screen shot(s) somewhere? But perhaps you mean the status? If so,
enable the status bar: View|Toolbars|Status Bar

Bottom right corner should show Unread: x Total: x

To add columns to show in the Message list pane, click on the little
hatch box just to the right of the Subject/Sender/Date etc. You can then
select what else to add or remove.

How to Install in Thunderbird

   1. Right-click the link below and choose "Save Link As..." to
download and save the file to your hard disk.
   2. In Mozilla Thunderbird, open Add-ons from the Tools menu.
   3. Click the Install button, and locate/select the file you
downloaded and click "OK".

Does that not work for you?
