Core system

  • Very occasionally, when you part a channel, you will then receive something from the channel, and it'll popup again. (Timing issue/order things happen). - Have not seen this since some changes to the backend core.
  • Increase the default character spacing by 1 px. My double Vs show up as a w everywhere except for to the left of the post time. Havvy 04:39, 6 February 2008 (UTC)
  • Mibbit mangles encodings; I am joining a Russian IRC server, which reports that it detecged cp1251 on my (Mibbit?) side, and supposedly sends symbols in cp1251. However, when I view the site in cp1251, as well as unicode or any old Russian encoding, I still see ???s
  • If there is a colon before the bracket before the quit message (i.e. * Nickname quit (Quit:)) it's parsed as a :) emoticon.
  • The first person who joins en empty channel decides on the capitalisation of its name and if someone later on joins the same channel, via the embedded widget, using another capitalisation, that user will end up with two channel tabs for the same channel. Example: A runs /join #Chan and the channel is created. B uses embedded widget to join #chan. B now has both #chan and #Chan tab open.
  • Built in translation has problems. EG: /translateme french. if you put in "I said MAYBE", it returns "I said MAYBE (J'ai dit MAYBE)" , and parses the "#39;ai" as a channel (i am not entirely sure if this is filed correctly) 23:13, 1 April 2008 (UTC)


  • In the chat output code we get lots of css errors reported for setting white-space.
  • (FF2) sometimes the cursor in the input field is invisible (happens ultra rarely now, known Gecko 1.8 bug). Workaround: step through all tabs.
  • Firefox 3 "edit channels" are too narrow.
  • Will not connect in Firefox Portable (v2.0.0.11) Says 'Loading ... ... ...'on top bar, and when selecting an additional server and click connect it does not go any further.
  • (FF2) The channel list (/list) does not update until "/quote list" is sent from any open mibbit client on the user's computer.
  • When the user does ping timeout, the ghost will be there, and that means there is 2 same-nicked users.
  • (FF2) Sometimes messages that should be more than one line are just cut off to fit on one line (word wrap not working?).


  • (IE6)
    • 100% CPU usage on some servers with many color changes and autoconnect to all channels (silly setting though)
    • Opening links often makes the new window crash, leading to both the new window and the mibbit chat window closing
    • It seems [People Said Stuff!] shows up when you say something.
    • The input line seemingly extends beyond its container (not in every tab, though)
  • IE7
    • (Firefox also) My Channels tab: I've added 2 channels but can't add any more.


  • In the chat output code we get lots of css errors reported for setting white-space.
  • When closing the window, the client does not react and does not disconnect from the server

Prism (Mozilla webapp)

v. 0.9 (Gecko 1.9 based, formerly called WebRunner): works now, http://labs.mozilla.com/2007/10/prism/


  • (Konq 3.5)
    • Mouse wheel scrolling doesn't work, unless your mouse is over the scroll bar.
    • Input history (up and down arrows) works, but puts the typing cursor at the very start of the line, instead of at the end.
    • Tab complete on nicks leaves the typing cursor at the position where you last typed. I.e. after a tab complete, it doesn't jump forward in front of the nick. (Like "Th|eirNick: " instead of "TheirNick: |")
    • Konqueror's spell checker doesn't work with the chat text input box (Firefox's spell checker works with Mibbit. Could it be Konqueror's plugin just simply doesn't work with that type of input field?).
    • When logging in to your Mibbit account, KDE's KWallet password manager doesn't pop up and ask if you want to store the login information (Firefox's built in password manager does).
