Are you sure you're running Pidgin 2.10.6?  The issue with Buddy List entries requiring three clicks to open a new conversation window was something users were experiencing with version 2.10.5, and reportedly fixed for 2.10.6.

Guifications is a third-party plugin, and not really supported here, but here's what they say about it:
"Why does Guifications disappear on WinPidgin upgrades?

This is a problem with the Pidgin installer. When you upgrade Pidgin with the installer, it removes the old installation, including everything in Pidgin's pixmaps directory and the directory Gufications' system-wide themes are stored in. This means that you will need to reinstall Guifications. You should be installing all themes to your user account's .purple/guifications/themes directory (generally %APPDATA%\.purple\guifications\themes, where %APPDATA% is an environment variable which automatically expands as appropriate on all modern Windows versions when used in Explorer's address bar or the Run box's entry area), so that they will not get removed during an upgrade"
