At the moment you can choose either to notify for all IM messages and/or messages on active window.

I'd like to see functionality similar to MSN Messenger, so that only new conversations (those that do not have a window/tab open) will show the notification. Also clicking on the notification could open the conversation window it's notifying.

    Also there's one really annoying bug/feature. When you get disconnected and Pidgin automatically reconnects, you'll see notifications for every single contact that is online.

    The second request will be part of the next release ;)

    @: sallezzz fixed your added second comment (reregistering floods with notifications) and it will be changed in the next release (on reregistering PidginSnarl will behave like as one the startup)
