Description

The Pidgin systray icon is Pidgin's default. Even if we could change it to the same we use in the task bar, it would look strange because Windows 8 has no such systray icon. Instead, what about disabling Pidgin's systray icon when in camouflage mode? I guess it'd become a persistent change, though, if the Pidgin preset is enabled, which is problematic.

Any ideas?

Just found out about #7376. Let's say this ticket is about disabling the tray icon then.

We considered those as no real issues. The camouflage mode tries to avoid being spotted as Tails by someone passing by but it can't be a 100% perfect imitation of Windows. So we decided to reject both tickets.
