User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:20.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/20.0 Build ID: 20130409194949 Steps to reproduce: Opened up thunderbird, chat tab. Show accounts, then + New Account. Actual results: I see facebook google talk irc twitter xmpp Expected results: I want to see skype also. This probably does not qualify as a bug - more like a new feature request. But I do not know where to go for this request. I want to see thunderbird chat also support skype.

Sorry, I should have put a comment in there too. (In reply to Andre Klapper from comment #1) > Please see > https://getsatisfaction.com/mozilla_messaging/topics/ > how_do_you_use_the_new_tbird_chat_capability_with_skype_chat Almost all the information in this thread is wrong. Skype uses a closed protocol, but there are ways to interface to it with an SDK called SkypeKit. Most likely we'd do this as an add-on, by the way. At least initially. (In reply to Magnus Melin from comment #2) > There's a Skype Protocol Plug-in summer of code project proposal... > https://wiki.mozilla.org/Community:SummerOfCode13#Thunderbird We've had a few inquires about this and will hopefully get some good applications. I think you mean https://wiki.mozilla.org/Community:SummerOfCode13#Instantbird, though. We have an open Instantbird bug with a bit of information: https://bugzilla.instantbird.org/show_bug.cgi?id=563
