TorBirdy automatically disable Chat connection.
Options - Chat - "When TB starts: [Keep my Chat Accounts offline]"

Chat - Show Accounts - "Instant messaging status"
"You have disabled automatic connections"

How can I set TorBirdy NOT to mess up my chat settings?
Why I have to click "Connect now" every fucking time I start Thunderbird?

Please implement a checkbox to disable this behavior!!

I have the same problem. Can't I let XMPP connect on startup, automatically?

Your add-on somehoe interfere with Thunderbird's chat settings, preventing startup connection.

Automatic login for chat accounts is disabled for the same reason as automatic login for email accounts. wiki:torbirdy#WhyisThunderbirdnotcheckingfornewmessagesautomatically. It is true that you can enable this for email accounts but for chat accounts, adding exceptions is not a special case that is special enough IMO. (Of course unless you have a compelling case for this :)
