Jabber main window opens with each new chat message - how do I stop it?

Hey,

With the recent Cisco Jabber update I've noticed that each time I receive a chat message (just a new message in an already open chat window) the main Jabber window reopens each time. Anyone know how I stop this from happening? It's really annoying. I don't want the main Jabber window open all of the time.

Thanks.

Hi Kimberly,

Hi Kimberly,

What are the Jabber and CUCM/IM&P versions?

Which OS is installed on the PC?

Jabber version is 11.8.2. I'm unsure about the CUCUM/IM&P version.

OS is Windows 7.

Hi Kimberly,

Hi Kimberly,

Thanks for the details. I do not see any specific known issue with this version and symptoms. Is this affecting all Jabber clients? If yes, then there is a possibility of a bug/global config issue, else if it is only affecting a few clients then it will likely be client specific and you can try comparing the client config of the ones that work fine with those that don't and also try reinstall of any one of them to see how it goes before getting into the Jabber PRT logs and further troubleshooting.

Hi Manish,

Hi Manish,

Just wanted to report that we see the same issue with Cisco Jabber 11.8.2 on both Windows 7 SP1 x64 and Windows 10 1607 x64.

We are just in the middle of upgrading to 11.8.2 and also are getting reports from some frustrated uses. They do not like having the main window taking up space in their task bar. Have seen the behavior on both Windows 7 x64 and Windows 10 X64.

I would suggest opening a TAC SR so that this can be fixed or a bug filed if required.

I do not have a Bug number - they just told me it would be logged as a bug to be worked.


It is not resolved in the newest version of Jabber 11.8.4 so not sure when they will address this bug.

Same issue here. Highly irritating.

My feeling is that this is

My feeling is that this is due to the new panel in the main window, on the left margin, with the icons "Contacts", "Chats", "Recents", "Voice Messages", and "Meetings".  

Each time that I receive a new chat update, there is a red bubble that shows the number of unread updates, which cover the "Chats" icon.

Could this icon change spring the main window up to notify that it has changed?

Hi Manish,

Hi Manish,

From what I know everyone in my team is having the same issue. I'm unsure about company-wide though.

Thanks,

Manish, I too have the same

Manish, I too have the same problem whereby the main Jabber window opens along with the chat window each time I receive a new chat.

There should be an option to only have the chat window open when receiving new chats, and NOT the main Jabber window also.

This issue occurs across our environment as well. Tests on several PCs with different users indicate that the issue occurs with 11.8.0, 11.8.3 and 11.8.4 but it doesn't occur with 11.7.1 on the same PC with the same user etc.

PCs tested are Win 7 x86, x64 and Win 10 x64 1703

I'm also experiencing this issue with 11.8.2 and 11.8.4.

 

Is there any updates to this issue and a ticket# for this bug?
