Are there any errors in the error console? Does this only happen when you check "Auto-join this Chat Room"?
Only happens when I check "Auto-Join this Chat Room", otherwise it closes.

No errors in the Error Console.

Thanks for removing my mistake.

Porting the focusing of the conversation seemed like too big of a change for this bug, but the current diff is pretty small.

Patch v1

[Approval Request Comment]
Regression caused by (bug #): bug 920801 (
User impact if declined: Unable to add chat rooms to the auto-join list from the "Join Chat" menu. Current aurora will be the next version of TB to go to the release channel.
Testing completed (on c-c, etc.): Committed to c-c, I've tested this by hand, we can let it bake on c-c and ask the reporter to ensure the bug is fixed though.
Risk to taking this patch (and alternatives if risky): I see this as pretty low risk, it's porting a change that has been in Instantbird since Oct. 14, 2013 (~7 months).
