Google Talk requires a key every time now

Lately, everytime I reconnect to Google for my chats there, Adium requires me to get a new Google authorization key. Why isn't it being saved, and how do I get rid of the problem?
This happened once before, and it eventually stopped on its own.

Re: Yahoo after August 5

That's because the new Yahoo Messenger is a totally different protocol.
It is time to dump Yahoo. The new Messenger does not even tell you who is online.

Re: Yahoo after August 5

So, I got the real scoop. When Verizon bought Yahoo, they got the rights to the name "Yahoo Messenger" but not the software. So this is a totally different program (which sucks), and it will not work for sure. And on my Mac (10.11.6), it dies listing my chats.

Yup. It is August 6, and Adium will no longer connect to Yahoo.

Yahoo after August 5

Will Adium still work with Yahoo chat rooms after August 5 when they are retiring the”old style” support?

Re: Vienna 3.1.1 hangs

I am still getting this. And even worse, if I have a phone arena page open in Vienna, and force quit, that page hangs Vienna when I start it again unless I am fast and can delete it before it loads.

What layout are you using?

Horizontal Layout. The hang is not there initially. I think it happens when all their ads start to take over the screen.

Vienna 3.1.1 hangs

Every time I open an article in phonearena (http://www.phonearena.com/feed), Vienna hangs. I must force quit. This did not happen before 3.1.

Google access code required EVERY time

In the past few days, Adium is requiring a Google access code to sign into my Google Talk accounts. That is a good idea. The problem is that Adium is not remembering the code from session to session, so I have to install a new access code every time I reconnect to this account, even if Adium is neve...

Yahoo file transfers

It is for many years now that transferring a file to a Yahoo user does not work. The person at the far end never gets notice of the transfer, on my end it appears to be instantly transferring, and it apparently goes into the bit bucket.

Why hasn't this been fixed? Am I the only one with this issue?

Why isn't Vienna multithreaded?

It is really frustrating for Vienna to totally freeze while it is checking for updates. Surely this could (and should) be done in a separate thread!

Re: Yahoo "unidentified error" or no connection?

It finally connected yesterday after I logged in via the Web. But today (the 18th) it will not connect. Yahoo is totally broken. File transfers out from Adium have not worked for many years. When you log out of Yahoo (if you can log in), contacts still show as "online" Rooms do not work pr...

Offline contacts shown as online

Using Adium 1.5.9 on Mavericks (and before), when I log off all messengers, I still see 1 or 2 of my contacts shown as online. They are still shown as online when I log back in, but are in fact offline.

Re: Can receive files, but cannot send to Yahoo users

Alas, I have a lot of friends who refuse to use anything other than Yahoo chat.

The more pressing problem is that AOL group chats are broken on Adium for people using the new AIM. It says that their client is not supported. And if they ionvite you, you can never delete the group that is created.

Re: Can receive files, but cannot send to Yahoo users

This was the ticket.

Milestone Adium 1.5 deleted
Resolution set to notadiumcode
Status changed from new to closed

This ain't fixed, see ​#p12472.
comment:3 Changed 3 years ago by Robby

I guess it is Pidgin code. I think I filed a bug there too. But no one seems to care.

Re: Can receive files, but cannot send to Yahoo users

I had filed a bug on this, and just today they closed it claiming it was not in Adium’s code. Presumably it is part of Pidgin.
Everyone start complaining to Pidgin.

Re: Deleting Groups

Its the $%^& new AOL. You cannot invite anyone using it to an Adium/Pidgin chat room. If they make one, it is forever stuck on your contact list until THEY deletre it. You cannot. The incompatibility with Adium needs fixing.
