Created attachment 8352298 [details] Screenshot with not active "Start a conversation" *** Original post on bio 729 as attmnt 557 by mansonigor AT gmail.com at 2011-03-15 19:06:00 UTC *** After adding ICQ contact to buddy list i can't request authorization of that contact: there is no such option in context menu. This also causes disabling of "Start a conversation" option when contact uses antibot(in my case it was Qip Infium internal antibot). "Start a conversation" icon also not present.

*** Original post on bio 729 at 2012-04-17 20:17:48 UTC *** We recently rewrote some of the authorization code for Instantbird 1.2, is this still an issue in the nightly builds?
*** Original post on bio 729 at 2012-05-09 10:34:17 UTC *** That was only for receiving authorization requests, which are now shown in a notification bar on top of the contact list instead of modal dialogs. I wouldn't know how to request authorization from one of my ICQ buddies myself -> confirming as NEW.
*** Original post on bio 729 at 2012-05-09 10:37:17 UTC *** For clearification: Comment 0 is about an IB user requesting authorization from someone else while comment 1 is about the reverse situation (someone else requesting authorization from an IB user <- if there's an issue, please file a new bug for that).
