This is in Thunderbird. I have a number of news feeds and they occasionally get stopped or paused. It's annoying. Is there a way to disable this paused account feature in Thunderbird? If I want an account paused, it should be my choice not Thunderbird's.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Thank you for the replies. I found the solution here that i was looking for. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1354965

The procedure: In Thunderbird click on the hamburger menu or three stacked lines in the top right-hand corner. Then click on Preferences. Then in the search bar type config. Then when it displays click on the Config Editor button. You'll get a warning: Changing these preferences can impact Thunderbird performance or security. In the search bar, copy and paste or type the following:

rss.disable_feeds_on_update_failure

By default it is set as true. Clicking on the symbol at the end switches it to false. No restart required.
