      Description

      In the Chat/Firestorm pref settings, the autohide main chatbar option needs a "Requires Restart" next to it. In the FUI versions this won't enable until you restart. The option does work, but only after a restart.

          Hiya Kostika,

          After checking the autohide option, if you hit ESC it should hide the bar.
          Can you check if that works?

          ESC to hide
          ENTER to bring back

          Yep that does work.

          This isn't obvious though as you have to click in the main chat bar text field in order for the ESC to work for it to disappear. Just pressing ESC without clicking in it does nothing. Also it doesn't work if you click in the text area of the conversation window and press ESC.

          Trivial fix, add (ESC hides, ENTER brings it back) next to the preference option.

          Made the main chatbar hide/unhide automatically whenever the autohide option is changed in 27463 (http://hg.phoenixviewer.com/phoenix-firestorm-lgpl/rev/cc26da181dac) so the extra hint in preferences is not necessary.
