/whois should popup dialog instead of displaying text in chat
It would be great if, when a user preforms a /whois command on a user, it could popup a dialog with all the information ordered nicely.
this is not a bug but an RFE
Severity: normal → enhancement
confirming as RFE
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
Remove myself from QA of 33 open Chatzilla bugs and change to default QA contact, since I have no way to verify these easily. Still no working Mozilla on my primary platform and it doesn't look like it will happen anytime soon. :(

No what you want is a /uwho command like in mIRC. there are many good reasons why /whois acts like it does.
May I suggest something intermediate between what this RFE asks and what ChatZilla currently does? The WHOIS response could be shown in the server tab instead of the current tab.
My personal idea is to add a single preference for "Use dialogs instead of displaying data in-line" (with better wording!), which toggles between commands opening dialogs and not (maybe store flag on the command event data too?). Commands that might care: whois, who, list, join, connect, attach, server, network.
