Hello!

Quick question: I have to stay in the states for a few months while my visa is being appealed...I've been in France for almost five years but not quite a full five. I was wondering how long I can stay before I lose my residency for my citizenship.

THANKSSSSS!

It depends on a number of things. If you read the Service Public pages on Naturalization it explains things in a bit more detail: https://www.service-public.fr/particuliers/vosdroits/F2213 Click on the tab about Résidence en France.

Not sure what you mean by >>I have to stay in the states for a few months while my visa is being appealed.<< but from the Service Public information you need to maintain your residence while you're away, as you need 5 years of legal residence just prior to when you deposit your application for citizenship. If you've already been in France for four plus years, you should be simply renewing your titre de séjour, not going for a new visa.
Cheers,
Bev
