Description

I have updated to Pidgin Portable 2.40 and have been having a very weird problem...

1st of all, it basically seems like whatever settings were active on the individual servers is how things appear under Pidgin.

I tried to use the feature of combining my friends' multiple account listings into "single friend" status using the expand feature. I also tried putting users into personalized sections (Rocky Horror being one of them)... Then the third issue, I had enabled a smiley pack called Pidgin-original (which had the smileys from myspace as well as MOST of the other IMs)...

After I shut down Pidgin (portable or not) and restart it, all the settings that I have altered in the previous instance are gone (I have denied the same user access to my ICQ friends list about 35 times in the past week or two). In addition, the Pidgin-original smiley pack cannot be activated/reactivated/reinstalled.

Any advice?

"1st of all, it basically seems like whatever settings were active on the individual servers is how things appear under Pidgin." I have no idea what that means, can you elaborate? Do you mean aliases and things?

Make sure the permissions on your .purple directory are correct (see if the debug window output Help->Debug Window) says anything about permission or writing errors when making changes to preferences/accounts/etc. in pidgin.
