The "Set as Default" button on the Account Settings window is disabled when a NNTP server is the selected account.  

Reproducible: Always




This may impair the fixing of bug #224335.

it seems only IMAP and POP3 include the method GetCanBeDefaultServer.  it should be added to nntp, as well as news server types.  setting the pref mail.accountmanager.defaultaccount manually, after finding the right acct etc, works without problem.  

Local Folders have the canBeDefaultServer property, but it's false, and setting the pref manually does not select/load its account central page on startup, only after returning to the folder.  why?  likely separate bug here..

Fixing this bug is necessary for making server-less news: URIs work correctly as documented in RFC 5538.
