Description

Please make it easier to lookup what my otr fingerprint is.
For now I can only find it by starting an otr session with someone and selecting manual fingerprint verification in the authenticate contact dialog window.

For now, it will be available by going to: Tools > Add-ons > Extensions > ctypes-otr > Preferences

Yes, that's a lot of clicks and will be improved but at least you don't need to start a session to get that info.

One way to fix this issue would be to make the "OTR preferences" dialog which can be accessed by the following:

  1. start OTR conversation
  2. click lock icon in chat header
  3. select "OTR preferences"

as a top-level menu item. This dialog displays the OTR fingerprint per account, while allowing you to easily switch the account to display.

Given the importance of OTR functionality to the messenger, having the preferences be a top-level menu item makes a lot of sense to me.
