ChatZilla: Notify on All Messages
ChatZilla users have for a while wanted to get a notification on all messages, but we've never considered it important enough to warrant fixing individually, instead opting to recommended some workarounds:
Add all vowels/letters to the Stalk List, thus triggering the normal stalk matching on (almost) every message.
Write a simple script, but never providing one ourselves.
Wait for the new message filtering which will be able to do it, among many other variations.
Today, another user asked for this feature, and I caved in and wrote a script to do it. To install the script:
Find the scripts folder. You can use either /pref profilePath or /pref initialScripts since the latter defaults to the "scripts" subdirectory of the former. You want the "scripts" subdirectory, if that wasn't obvious.
Create a new directory for this script. My suggested name is "message-notify", just to match the script's ID, but ChatZilla doesn't care.
Save the script itself into the new directory, making sure to name it "init.js".
Reload all scripts with "/eval processStartupScripts()". This will reload all the scripts found in the subdirectories of the "scripts" directory - including the new one.
The following message categories trigger the script, but only when the window is inactive (nothing happens if the window is active):
The script has two preferences:
sound - specifies what sound to play when a message arrives. Defaults to "beep", and can accept the same things as the standard ChatZilla sound preferences (namely, a file: URL, "beep" or "none").
attention - specifies whether to grab the user's attention, which usually means flashing the window but can vary by platform. Defaults to "true".

If you have ChatZilla build 0.9.92 2016-02-08 19:00 or later, you can do:
Otherwise, due to a bug, you will need to download the master archive and extract it in to a new subfolder of the "scripts" folder. This can be found inside the path shown by the command "/pref profilePath".
[INFO] Preference “profilePath” is “C:\Users\James\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\secret.dev-edition-default\chatzilla”.

ChatZilla Plugin: Activity in Title
This plugin for ChatZilla shows activity in channels and private messages in the title bar.
Display - Text
The textual display shows up to three groups, each containing a list of views in that state.
<...> indicates items with stalk events (e.g. mentions of your nickname, stalk words, and private messages).
[...] indicates items with chat events (e.g. all talking in channels).
(...) indicates items with superfluous events (e.g. joins, parts, topic changes).
Display - Symbol
The symbolic display shows a single symbol for each view, in the same order as the textual display groups.
! indicates an item with stalk events (e.g. mentions of your nickname, stalk words, and private messages).
+ indicates an item with chat events (e.g. all talking in channels).
- indicates an item with superfluous events (e.g. joins, parts, topic changes).
display.symbol boolean (default false)
When enabled, the display is just status symbols (!, + and -). Otherwise, the display is (possibly truncated) names.
display.crop integer (default 0)
Specifies how much of the view name to include, in characters. A value of 0 turns off truncation.
titlebar.event boolean (default false)
When enabled, the title bar includes superfluous events.
titlebar.chat boolean (default true)
When enabled, the title bar includes chat events.
titlebar.stalk boolean (default true)
When enabled, the title bar includes stalk events.
<UserA, UserB> [#channelA] (#channelB) ChatZilla!
In this example, UserA and UserB have stalk events, #channelA has chat events, and #channelB has superfluous events. Superfluous events are hidden by default.
This is the same as the example above, but with display.symbol set to true.
