I have these questions about using thunderbird irc:

1. How to hide join/quit and change nick notifications?
2. Can i open multiple chat tabs?
3. How to list channels that have more then 10 users and not list channels that have less than 10 users?
4. Why commands like /server, /ignore, /clear are not supported?

Unfortunately I don't use chat. A lot of the code was ported from Instantbird. Its not clear whether Instantbird is still being actively developed. Its last news post was from 2014. News, rss and chat are also sort of a backwater in Thunderbird.

See https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunde ... ions/chat/ for some chat related add-ons.

Actually i think as a rss client thunderbird is pretty decent, i am using it all the time, but as a irc client is not very powerful. The 'News' option i don't know why it is included, i doubt many people are using it.

By the way, will it be possible to hide join and quit messages with css code?
