Having problems with Facebook chat.

Hello,

I wanted to know if anyone else has been experiencing problems with facebook chat. At the beginning, while chatting, I would type a sentence and press "enter". It wouldn't work. I was not able to carry on chatting because randomly it would get stuck and my "enter" button would not work. To resolve the issue I would have to log off chat and re-log back in and click on the name of the person I was previously chatting with and then it would start working again. It would work for a little while and then get stuck again and so on. Very frustrating to say the least. I checked my keyboard and it is perfect. The problem is not with my keyboard.

 

Now it got worse. I open chat and I have my friends lists that I organized. I automatically have all my lists to "offline". When I click on the toggle button (the little oval button that turns gray or green), to see which friends are online it wont work. The toggle button "blinks" but stays gray. There is no way I can even see who is available now. It is very frustrating. If anyone else is having these issues or has an idea of what is wrong I would greatly appreciate feedback.

 

Thank you!!!

no problems with mine..
My first guess is that the trouble is with your web-browser, and i am going to guess that you are using Internet Explorer? If so, try Firefox just for fun, to see if it does the same thing.

If you're already using Firefox, try it in Internet Explorer.

Okay here is the funny thing. I normally use Firefox. I tried it with Internet Explorer and it happened also. Out of curiosity, I logged on to my husbands account and his chat is not responding either. So I was looking through the forums and thanks to another post, I remembered that my version of Firefox was outdated. I updated Firefox, and it still is giving me problems =(. BTW, I'm having the same problem on my lap top as well as my desk top. Weird. Thanks for responding though. =) I'm wondering, do you know of any programs someone can install on your computer that will disable chats? I have had problems with my ex's wife installing remote key loggers on my desk top. Every time I have problems like these, I can't help but wonder if it's her again.

 

Thanks!

Why not press charges? My facebook chat is doing ok.

    I don't press charges because they are in another country. Thank you for letting me know your chat is working. I must be just me.

Re: Having problems with Facebook chat.

I have the exact same problem but not as often anymore. It sometimes happens when the other person is writing a message and presses enter before i do, mine freezes or sometimes when i'm playing some of those facebook games. I also noticed that the sound of a new message is mostly gone for me, now that the chat doesn't freeze so much. I wish i could help and tell you what causes it but i'm really not sure.

Re: : problems with Facebook chat.

Try the Facebook chat on a different computer. If it does the same thing even on a different computer, then the problem is probably related to your Facebook account.
If chat works fine on a different computer, then the problem is related to that PC (browser version, Java version, antivirus or other security software 'blocking' it, etc).

It would be best to try on a computer with different software, not maintained by the same person, etc - for example, your work computer, or a friends.

Great news!  It started working all of a sudden. No more problems. I think it was a bug on Facebook.

Go online like Hot2na said - and refresh the page or log back in so that you can write again. Good luck :)

I know how to fix this cus the same thing happened to me for months.
First go to Account>Edit Friends>Create New List> then add one of your friends in the list
Then go back to your FaceBook chat, beside where it says other friends you can change it back to online.
