Instantbird chat window has at least the following focusable controls.
- input box - an edit field where user types messages to sent to his chat peers.
- a tab list - where user can switch individual conversations.
- A chat log - a read only control where incoming and outgoing messages are displayed.
There is a minor accessibility issue related to this chat log control.
There is a document rendered inside which has no title. If there is no title gecko generates the title out of the document url.
It's too verbose and ugly to be presented with such a horrible title each time focusing the chat log control.
The automatically generated title reads for example:
I have simply added a <title>Chat log</title> into the document markup inside the initHTMLDocument in the file modules/imThemes.jsm.
Of course localization should be taken into account while fixing this properly.

Thanks for filing this! Sorry no one has responded yet. We do need to add this and I'm marking it as new.

I inserted a title-tag at the given place and used the conversation title as value. I guess that's better than a generic "Chat log" title?

This looks fine, I'm not sure I love the comment...but it seems correct.

this probably should be separate bug, but the dialogue asking for the master password should probably also include the name of the application at least
