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.

I confirm this bug:
ICQ user can not send me a request for authorization

We recently rewrote some of the authorization code for Instantbird 1.2, is this still an issue in the nightly builds?

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.
Ever confirmed: true

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).
On the behalf of Florian:
Closing bugs related to the Instantbird UI as WONTFIX, as the development of the standalone chat client Instantbird has stopped. Instantbird users are encouraged to migrate to Thunderbird. The user interface of instant messaging in Thunderbird will feel familiar, as the Thunderbird IM support started as a fork of Instantbird.
