I have never used this addon myself but it could possibly have to do with your pidgin settings.

If you go to Tools and click on Preferences and click on the tab marked Status/Idle ensure that the box labeled "change status when idle" is not marked.

Other than that I can't think of anything else as I stated I have not used this addon

This is an awesome plugin but it notifys me every few seconds that someone has come online on facebook, having lots of facebook contacts that i dont talk to everyday this get frustrating is there a way to stop notifications for friends signing on for just the facebook account not my msn accounts

CaptainMark,

you can turn that off

Accounts -> Facebook account -> Uncheck new mail notifications

:)

EDIT: Oops, didn't read the post well

do you have the guification plugin installed?

Yeah i thought of that but oddly enough, no option for this here. Because facebook is not an email client. If i could do that though it would only stop me being notified when i get emails through facebook, i want to stop getting a popup in the corner whenever facebook contacts come online

check the options of the plugins you have installed(mainly it's guifications you are talking about)
