IRC members list

Thunderbird Daily 2012-04-04, Windows XP SP 3 32-bit

The list of members of an IRC channel is not sorted alphabetically, see attached screenshot.

Are there additional steps to reproduce? The lists I see in my Thunderbird are sorted correctly.
Comment 2 Sebastian Hengst [:aryx][:archaeopteryx] 2012-04-05 05:20:57 PDT
Unfortunately not. I played with quitting and rejoining and later found the result shown in the screenshot.
Comment 3 Florian Quèze [:florian] [:flo] 2012-06-06 10:05:51 PDT
I found a way to reproduce: this happens when clicking on the "Conversations" line (the very first item in the list of the left pane) and then selecting a chat room again.
Comment 4 Mike Conley (:mconley) - (needinfo me!) 2012-07-16 11:58:07 PDT
Gonna see if I can help Florian out by grabbing this one.
Comment 5 Mike Conley (:mconley) - (needinfo me!) 2012-07-16 14:50:04 PDT
Alright, I think I've figured this one out - the pane's contacts are being sorted via insertion sort in imconversation.xml in addNick.

addNick relies on the listbox "nicklist" having a reliable count.

At the time of switching from the "Conversation" line in the left pane, the nicklist is hidden, and so we're unable to get a proper count (since apparently listbox will only give us a proper count when the item is visible).

So we simply need to make the contextPane visible before we list the participants. Patch is up next.

What about just moving this line to line 496?

Patch v2

As suggested here and in IRC, I've moved the code that makes the contextPane visible from the bottom of the function to closer to the top.

Looks good, thanks! Note: I haven't tested this patch, I assume you have or will before the check-in.
