    Default Unable to delete IM Buddy

    I have a situation where I am unable to delete an IM Buddy; right-click, choose delete from the contact menu, but nothing happens. There is some background, though, which may not be related.

    This buddy was originally added as foo@bar.net. Later, a new domain (fake.com) was added and that user's account was changed to foo@fake.com. So that this user would still receive mail at the old address, foo@bar.net was added as an alias.

    Now, foo@bar.net still shows up in my buddy list, and I cannot delete it. I am tempted to edit that account and change it back to the original address to see if I can delete it then.

    This is the only buddy in the list, by the way. If I create a second one, and then try to delete the first one, the second one gets deleted instead.

    I'll continue to tinker to see if I can remove it. But just in case, would someone be able to tell me where to go manually delete it? I'm sure it's in LDAP or MySQL and I would find it if I just looked. But I would rather someone with knowledge about the beta IM feature give me a list of steps to make sure I remove this buddy cleanly.

    Well, I changed the account back to the original email address and I was then able to remove the buddy from my list. So there is definitely a bug where if an account that is in someone else's buddy list gets renamed, it cannot be removed from said buddy list.

    You might want to put something in Bugzilla about that.

    Bug 34653

    I am adding this stupid sentence because this silly forum told me my reply was too short. And because I am a smart-ass, I'll do it again: I am adding this stupid sentence because this silly forum told me my reply was too short.
