"Friends" button does nothing

When I click the "Friends" button in the ribbon menu, nothing happens. How can I figure out what's wrong?

OS: Ubuntu 18.04.3
Wine version: 5.7
Voobly Version: (according to logs)

Wine output:
002b:fixme:mountmgr:harddisk_ioctl Unsupported ioctl 74080 (device=7 access=1 func=20 method=0) 0009:fixme:win:FlashWindowEx 0x31a2e0 - semi-stub 0009:fixme:win:FlashWindowEx 0x31bbd0 - semi-stub 0009:fixme:win:FlashWindowEx 0x31a2e0 - semi-stub 0009:fixme:win:FlashWindowEx 0x31bbd0 - semi-stub

Yet nothing happens. No window opens, regardless whether Voobly runs in a virtual desktop or "native".
Sorry if this was already asked before, but I cannot find any forum search function.

Are you able to send/ receive private chat messages?

Thank you for checking this issue.

Yes, I can send and receive private chat messages - both on Linux, but that should not matter.
While testing I noticed that the messenger window is supposed to show up, and here it's somewhat off-screen. I can maximize the window, but not resize.

So I updated Wine to 5.9 (newest)

1) Start Voobly without virtual desktop (native windows) 1920x1080
-> Works fine, messenger window is shown and the toolbar icon is visible as well

2) Start Voobly with Virtual desktop 1024x768
-> The messenger window is shoot into any direction, inaccessible

3) Basically first step again, native windows 1920x1080
-> No messenger window, and the game browser seems to be limited to an arificial 1024x768 px screen area measured from top left. When I drag the game browser outside that area, it looks as follows (attachment 1). Clipped list highlighting and "click areas".


The registry looks as follows (uint32_t underflow?)


TL;DR: The screen size does not adapt when changing from virtual desktop to native windows. Voobly still assumes the old dimensions.

EDIT4 (or so): I'd like to continue using the virtual desktop so that AoE2 can crash whenever it wants, without messing up the native desktop resolution.
