#90 Unable to change Instant Messenger Server settings

I\'ve sent this bug to Netscape, but it is a real pain not being able to use IM in the new 6.2 browser. I need to change the Port that IM runs over to 21 (FTP Port) because of Firewall issues. And I can not edit the Port setting in 6.2 for IM.

To see this bug do the following: 1. From the Menu select Edit/Preferences. 2. Then select Instant Messenger/Connection. 3. In the top box that is the \"Server\" section, attempt to change either the \"Host:\" or \"Port:\" value. It can not be edited.

When trying to click the text box I can not even get focus on the field. If I click the word \"Host:\" or \"Port:\" the text box gets focus, but you still can not edit the field.

Anyone got any idea how I might be able to change the Port setting?
