This happened to me with 2 different moznet accounts.

One caused this error in the console:
Error: Connection reset.
Source File: resource://gre/components/irc.js
Line: 731
Source Code:
prpl-irc

The other caused:
Error: Connection closed by server.
Source File: resource://gre/components/irc.js
Line: 725
Source Code:
prpl-irc


In the account manager, both account were stuck on "connecting...".
Clicking the "disconnect" button caused this error for each account:
Error: this._account is undefined
Source File: resource://gre/components/irc.js
Line: 747

The accounts were marked as disconnected only after a few seconds. Then they connected fine when I clicked on "Connect".

The trigger here seems to be a connection reset before the account is successfully connected.

It's not clear whether the "connecting..." state is that of a reconnection attempt after the connection is lost, or that of an initial connection attempt during which the connection is lost.

I think it was after typing /back to reconnect after changing location.

It's possible this might go away due to Bug 939318.
