Build ID: 20121005155445

Steps to reproduce:

I thought I could open up another channel, or room, which was a DCC. So I clicked on the "Open this Channel at Startup" button.


Actual results:

So ever since then I get a message just like my screenshot.


Expected results:

Is there any way to get rid of this message?  Otherwise, Chatzilla rocks.
If you go to ChatZilla > Preferences, in the window that comes up under the 'Startup' tab, at the bottom there's a list with URLs that ChatZilla will open on startup. Remove the one that's in the popup that you see, and you should be good!

We should probably:
- make sure you can't do this for DCC file transfers
- make sure you either can't do this or that it Just Works for DCC chats
- remove invalid IRC urls from the list automagically.

Nope, it's not on that list.  You can see what I've got over here: http://www.geocities.ws/thezipguy/misc/ChatZilla%20Preferences_2012-10-12_17-14-27.png . It does have the rooms that I usually go to, which it loads just fine after I click on the ok button to the alert message.  It's only slightly annoying.  Is there another place where Chatzilla has a profile or something?

Sorry, I left out that you'll need to open the "Global Settings" portion on the left. In the tabs on the right, there'll be a "Startup" one. That's where you'll find the list I mentioned.
ahh That's it. It was there http://www.geocities.ws/thezipguy/misc/ChatZilla Preferences_2012-10-12_17-44-42.pn  and I removed it http://www.geocities.ws/thezipguy/misc/Confirm_2012-10-12_17-44-59.png and Shazzam, the alert vanished!  Thanks
dang I had to rename that screenshot it's here now http://www.geocities.ws/thezipguy/misc/ChatZilla_Preferences_2012-10-12_17-44-42.png
I think the right way to do it in a "DCC Conversation with zipguy" (or whomever) is to grey out the menu pick from IRC-> which is "Open at Startup" which would prevent people from falling into this trap.
