When you use Chatzilla in firebird as a tab by typing
chrome://chatzilla/content/ into the adressbar then chatzilla wont connect to
any server. it will just hang at the first attempt and never connect. Bu twhen
you run chatzilla by typing irc://irc.efnet.org thus opening its own window then
it will connect without a problem.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type chrome://chatzilla/content/ into firebird
2. Try to connect to server
3.

Actual Results:  
chatzilla doesnt connect

Expected Results:  
chatzilla connects to the server

hmmm but on the more info page on the extensionroom that way was given as a
possibility. so its a bit weird if it isnt working then :S but nevermind then i
will use the extension the normal way. but i hope it will be possible in the
future cause tht would make the extension so much better.

The chatzilla 0.9.x branch has landed on the trunk and should be available in
tomorrow's nightly build.  If you believe this bug has not actually been fixed,
please repoen it.

Stops re-entrancy in the load/init code.

This doesn't make it work completely - dropping irc: URLs on the tab caused a
new, standalone ChatZilla window to open - but it connected and worked enough
to join a channel and talk. We're getting there. :)

Return early if already inited client.

This is, I think, functionally equivelant to the previous patch, but is much
neater. :)

You need to check for "initialized in client" as well to avoid strict warnings.
r=me with that

You can either get 0.9.61 from http://www.hacksrus.com/~ginda/chatzilla/ or wait
for the next nightly Mozilla build. Both will have this patch in.

--> FIXED.

ChatZilla does now connect to servers when used in a tab, however, many other
issues exist. This bug I believe was just for the basic connecting issue.
