First of all, when I want to open Pidgin, the window appears and it's "blank", it says "Connecting ..." and nothing happens. If I open pidgin as root, then it's working fine.

Another problem is with links and files received on conversations. I use Opera as default browser and when i'm clicking on a link, the page is opened in an old Opera session. The same thing happens with images, pdf files, doc files, etc. All of them are opened with Opera.

And the last problem is with file transfer using Yahoo protocol. I can receive files but when I want to send something to a friend, he don't receive any notification to save that file. Sometimes I can send files, but most of the time, it doesn't work.
