As decided during a meeting last week, let's disable IM for Tb13beta, as we expect to make some significant improvements to the chat feature before releasing it and don't feel we would have much time to handle the additional feedback received during this beta cycle.

Attaching a trivial patch to change the default value of the pref to globally turn off IM. Please see also bug 748322 before landing this patch.
