Not being able to disable filters is a great deal. Let's wait for the stacktrace, although I suspect this is T203336, which is already UBN and for which I already expressed my worries about its urgency.

(Reedy confirms this is Column 'afa_parameters' cannot be null)

Thanks Krenair and Reedy. BTW @Cyberpower678 a workaround is to re-set throttle parameters which got lost, which you can see in filter history. However please note that this only works because you're disabling the filter: it wouldn't work as it used to (although recently it totally stopped working (since July) just because, alas, throttle is broken, and that's why the other task is UBN).
