I mentioned this earlier with another issue but so it is not overlooked, am repeating it here.
I added my nick to the contact list. It remains grayed out though I am obviously online.
Since it is grayed out, ,indicating "offline", the menu option to Browse is omitted.
The option to Browse myself does appear from a channel nicklist. But that fails for me on one of my systems though works on another. That was my earlier issue.
The above behavior is just on one of my win 7 pro systems.
On my main system, my nick is highlighted on the contact list and I can browse myself successfully from there.
On my secondary system, My nick is not highlighted on the contact list as it is on the channels' lists. And as reported, I can't browse myself from this system.
I can't figure out why. Is it a setting? Is it somehow blocked by the particular modem/router on this system? I turned the internal firewall off and have created 'pinholes' by adding an entry for port forwarding. I can browse others, upload and download. Just can't browse myself. Not a biggie but it bugs me.
