After installing, uninstalling and reinstalling, there are ghosts of my old (now deleted) IMAP folders. How the heck do I get rid of them?

I installed Thunderbird a few months ago and set up my IMAP (Exchange) mail account. After I was done checking it out, I uninstalled it.
Fast forward to now, I want to switch back. After installing and running, it still lists all my old IMAP folders (now deleted from the server) and I can't figure out how to get rid of these 'ghosts'.
Googling various combinations of 'uninstall', 'Thunderbird', 'remove', and 'profile' yields some information but not enough to actually get rid of those damn ghost folders.
