Dear Support List,

We have just started using Google Chatback to reach out to our users.
When a user initiates a chat, Pidgin's message to accept the invitation pops under any windows we have open. So we often miss them before the user gives up.
All other messages pop up and make a sound.  

I wonder if it's because the invitation is really long. Here's the message: 


Accept chat invitation?

Someone clicked on your chatback badge: 


Is there any way to fix this?  
Or does anyone have an alternative product they use to allow users to chat without a chat client.

Here is the page where we have the chatback link :http://library.njit.edu/researchhelpdesk/askus.php

We had been using plugoo (free version) but gave up on it because it had other errors.

Thanks in advance,

Heather
