Multiple Inboxes have stopped working

Explain your issue in full detail here: WIN 7 Enterprise, Chrome,  Avast
Hello - my multiple inboxes were working perfectly, then one day they stopped. They are still configured correctly when I click on Settings-->Multiple Inboxes (is:starred and is:xxxxxxx). I tried the solutions I found by searching, like disabling the preview pane, but it was already disabled. Multiple Inboxes are enabled in Labs. 

A while back I switched to iPhone and was trying to emulate the Blackberry service which allows users to filter out emails that are sent to their cellphones. I created 2 alternate gmail accounts and I was experimenting with forwarding to see if I could get what I wanted. i was unable to get it to work. I don't see how this should affect my multiple inboxes on my main account - I still receive all my email in my main account just fine, but it doesn't get routed to my multiple inboxes. I can see which date my multiple inboxes stopped working, as the last message displayed in both of them is the same.

Any ideas would be appreciated!

One other thing I've noticed is that my labels seem to have stopped working in my main in-box. This would probably cause the is:xxxxx function to stop working as well, right? 
Is there any help on multiple inboxes?  I used to toggle my multiple inbox view on/off, but now I can't find any way to toggle the view on.  Multiple Inboxes in LABS is still enabled.

Please... any help?
SOLUTION:  If I set my inbox type to Classic, then all the other inboxes display.
