Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 843069
Cannot update personal details
Last modified: 2014-06-13 06:03:01 EDT
Description of problem:
With the empathy account settings, one can't update personal details of (at least) jabber accounts.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure and connect a Jabber/GTalk account with empathy
2. Try to type in or modify any of the form fields of the personal details in the accounts window
3. Leave the accounts window or just change to other account tab and go back
Details do not get updated
This relates only to accounts configured directly in Empathy. Editing personal details through Empathy is not available with accounts configured using Online Accounts feature.

That is quite old. Can you try with 3.6.1?
I tested this a bit and it seems to be working fine with 3.6.1. eg., I changed the picture, birthday and full name.
Just tried with empathy-3.6.0-2.el7.x86_64 and could only set the full name and the picture. Phone, email, website and birthday got scratched. Actually after closing the accounts settings window and reopening only alias field is present now (still online). Can't try 3.6.1 yet unless you'd like me to try a fedora or own build.
working well now, everything is persistent over tab change and window reopening
