Jabber main window opens with each new chat message - how do I stop it?

Hey,

With the recent Cisco Jabber update I've noticed that each time I receive a chat message (just a new message in an already open chat window) the main Jabber window reopens each time. Anyone know how I stop this from happening? It's really annoying. I don't want the main Jabber window open all of the time.

Thanks.

Hi Kimberly,

Hi Kimberly,

Thanks for the details. I do not see any specific known issue with this version and symptoms. Is this affecting all Jabber clients? If yes, then there is a possibility of a bug/global config issue, else if it is only affecting a few clients then it will likely be client specific and you can try comparing the client config of the ones that work fine with those that don't and also try reinstall of any one of them to see how it goes before getting into the Jabber PRT logs and further troubleshooting.

We are just in the middle of upgrading to 11.8.2 and also are getting reports from some frustrated uses. They do not like having the main window taking up space in their task bar. Have seen the behavior on both Windows 7 x64 and Windows 10 X64.

I would suggest opening a TAC SR so that this can be fixed or a bug filed if required.

It is not resolved in the newest version of Jabber 11.8.4 so not sure when they will address this bug.

Same issue here. Highly irritating.

My feeling is that this is

My feeling is that this is due to the new panel in the main window, on the left margin, with the icons "Contacts", "Chats", "Recents", "Voice Messages", and "Meetings".  

Each time that I receive a new chat update, there is a red bubble that shows the number of unread updates, which cover the "Chats" icon.

Could this icon change spring the main window up to notify that it has changed?

========================================================== we are using v11.8.4 build 52954 i do not think that this is a 'bug' it looks like it is the default operation of jabber i feel, there should be a local configuration setting that can be changed to stop it from displaying for each im session - users preference.

Hi Manish,

Hi Manish,

From what I know everyone in my team is having the same issue. I'm unsure about company-wide though.

Thanks,
