Note: you may need to replace en with the appropriate code of the language you're using: fr, it...

  • In skins/default/xui/en/panel_nearby_chat_bar.xml

Change the max_width (pixels) to a more suitable value.

 <string name="max_width">
    320
 </string>

Try a value of 1000 or greater.

  • Replace panel_instant_message.xml located in skins\default\xui\en

Close IM windows instead of just minimize

  • A workaround for this is to change can_close="true" in the floater_im_container.xml file.

Vertical Tabs in the Tabbed Chats Window

If you have used Emerald or a few other third party viewers, and used the vertical tabs setting, you know why this is useful. The new viewer can be hacked to have vertical tabs. Go to the folder where you installed it and look in the skins folder for your locale (mine is C:\Program Files\SecondLifeBetaViewer\skins\default\xui\en) for a file called floater_im_container.xml. Open that in your favorite text editor and look for a line that says tab_position="bottom" and change it to say tab_position="left". then look for a line that says tab_width="64" and change that to tab_width="134" (or any width that looks good to you and within the minimum and maximum definitions defined in adjacent lines). That will give you vertical tabs on friend and group IMs.

NOTE! i do not know how this will affect if you don't use a single tabbed window for IM's, but i suspect that ungrouped IM are not affected at all because i dont think they use this container layout defined in this file.
