So, I don't know why your account isn't connected (was there an error message displayed in the "Show Accounts" dialog?), but:

> 'TypeError: this._proxyCancel is null'

I debugged this error yesterday.
The check-in I'll port to comm-central: https://hg.instantbird.org/instantbird/rev/a6b5bedeef6d
The Instantbird bug: https://bugzilla.instantbird.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1464
This is a work-around for a necko bug, which I also filed: bug 758219

Calling disconnect immediately after creating an account is another issue that I debugged yesterday:
Check-in I'll port: https://hg.instantbird.org/instantbird/rev/53db88041a77
Instantbird bug: https://bugzilla.instantbird.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1465

To hit this, I assume you have used non-default settings for your IRC account.
If you used SSL, you can possibly have hit https://bugzilla.instantbird.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1455 (I'll also port this work-around to comm-central very soon; the real cause is bug 711786, another necko bug).
If you used freenode over SSL, you likely hit https://bugzilla.instantbird.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1292 for which I don't have any good solution at this point.

Of course I've enabled SSL :-) And I was trying mozilla.org's servers.

Can we set some dependencies I'll re-test when you have landed all your possible solutions.

I think all the "possible solutions" have landed, so please re-test and resolve if it's appropriate :).
Is this still an issue or has this been fixed?
As far as we know this should work fine. Please reopen this if it doesn't.
