I don't think there is any quick and easy way of doing this without loosing all your groups.

If you don't need your contacts separated into groups then the only thing I can suggest is you drag all your contacts into the one group, the you will only have the one group heading.

Sorry, I can't help you any more than that.

Thanks for the answers and url, guys. I came up with David's issue by myself but have been hoping there is a 'program' way to fix it.
I even think that the place where this option should be placed in a future releases is Menu->Contacts->Show->[Groups].

It seems like pidgin is one of the most simply-setting clients, really beautiful-looking, but having features to be added.
Thanks again.

+1. Facebook's recent implementation of XMPP has wreaked havoc on my clean little pidgin window. And open to show a flat merged buddy list would be a greatly appreciated.

Can you help with this problem?
