#11793 closed defect (fixed)

Error Window dialog needs a scroll view when text is too large

Description (last modified by Zachary West)

One case, MOTD in IRC:

File > IRC Account > View MOTD pops up a dialog containing the MOTD text. On Freenode, the MOTD is so long that it goes off screen, such that it can't be fully read, and any buttons (like "OK" to dismiss the window) cannot be clicked.

Best solution is probably to just put the MOTD within a scrollable and non-editable text box within the dialog.

(In [26906]) Set a maximum height on the error/info window (Fixes #11793). Revert the behavior that only made request/info windows ordered front, since they keep getting lost, and it's just utterly annoying to have to tab to something like the "initiate direct IM" window.
