I'm not an expert and I'm still running F8 but I AM using TBird 184.108.40.206.
There are two locations that you can set for junk mail.
The first is via Edit > Preferences and the "Junk" tab. Here you can
set the default Junk mail settings. Here I have set 'When I mark
messages as junk, move them to the accounts "junk" folder'. I also have
"Mark messages determined to be junk as read" set.
The second applies to account specific junk mail filters which you reach
by Edit > Account Settings and selecting "Junk Settings" under your
email account. Here I have the following set:
- Enable adaptive junk mail controls for this account
- Do not mark mail as junk if the sender is in: "Personal Address Book"
- Trust junk mail headers set by: SpamPal
- Move new junk messages to:
"Junk" folder on : <my account>
- Automatically delete junk mail older than 7 days.
Of course there are settings here you may wish to modify but this has
been working for me for some time. I would verify that both sets of
settings are as you wish them to be.
HTH, but remember, I haven't done this on F9 yet. I have yet to convert
my primary workstation to F9.
