When I edit our main Firewall policy (not the "Domain Firewall" policy) and try to remove or disable the Remote desktop setting to allow connections I get an error message that states: Unable to disable/delete the following rules: Remote Desktop (TCP-In)
I tried this from my computer logged & locally on the DC as my domain admin account, then again on the DC as the named domain admin account. Same error every time.
No errors listed in the Event viewer.

What do you mean mail Firewall policy? Which Group Policy did you configure?
Please give us detailed description about how you configured this GPO.
And according to your description, I think your DC is Windows Server 2008 or 2008 R2 please confirm that.
Please give us feedback for further troubleshooting.

Win 2008 R2 with 2 DCs. It does not matter where I am logged in, workstation or either DC, the error still shows up when I try to work with this rule.
By Main Firewall policy I am referring to the policy that we created and linked to the root of the domain.
Odd thing, I tried to replicate the error this morning so that I was not mis-remembering and I was able to disable the rule on one DC and then delete it on the other.
So it looks like my problem resolved itself. The underlying cause is not certain.
