Re: Having problems with Facebook chat.

I tried changing web browsers but it didnt work. I even did the uncheck sound. It still says all my friends are offline and some of my friends cant even see me. I had the same problem with my last Facebook account till i deleted it and made a new one. Now after 5 days of having a new one, Im having the same problems. What can I do, Im sick of this!

Re: Having problems with Facebook chat.

On the internet under IE & Facebook errors and Mozilla Firefox and Facebook errors there are many fixes for this same chat problem....

Mozilla Forums has stated that Mozilla Firefox requires a fix to use Facebook properly

http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=929425

IE Forums and Facebook have the following fixes for the chat problem...

As for the girl at the bottom post who was HACKED...there was a warning that went around a month ago about other users hacking into your acct by using your own name. ALWAYS check you friends list and REMOVE YOURSELF if you are listed...This is the new way Hackers are gaining access to our accts. You mistakenly log into it because you don't know any better and they steal your PASSWORD and take over your acct.....CAUTION!! Join Facebook HELP site for help with this. Good Luck!

I use IE 8 and have never had any problems with Facebook. I have my compatibility View Settings checked to apply to all and have Facebook listed.

I hope this helps......Amy

Re: Having problems with Facebook chat.

hello!my problem with facebook chat appeared 2 days ago, and is that it keeps writing 'no one is available for chat' even though I know that at least some of my 400 friends are online. Also, even if it seems that I am on line (green dot) no one from my friends can see me.I have tried it with different computers and different browsers,I even deactivated my account for one hour, I cleared internet cache and unchecked the sound alarms from chat options but the problem remains.Please tell what to do.
Thank you in advance
Chris

Re: Having problems with Facebook chat.

My chat is not working either. I am online but none of my friends can see me and when I click on a friend that is online to chat it says they are offline. I have a friend that can see me online when they use their Iphone and they can chat me but when I try to chat back it says they are offline even though they arent. Does anyone know how to fix this? I have contacted facebook with no reply from them.

Re: Having problems with Facebook chat.

Try clearing your browser cache. if that does not help, click on the Chat Options and UNcheck the "play sound" option. if neither help, try a different browser - if you use Internet Explorer, try it in Firefox or Chrome, or visa-versa.

Re: Having problems with Facebook chat.

There is another concern. Many a times, the message that I type and enter is shown to be sent twice in a row. On a couple of occasions, I didn't even press the enter key, but the message was shown to be sent.

I didn't have any problems with FaceBook chat until I changed from Explorer to Firefox.

There may be something to this like Hubby mentioned before - because last night I received a chat and my firefox browser froze immediately. So I logged into facebook with IE and I had no issues. Maybe something is conflicting?

Re: Having problems with Facebook chat.

If I'm typing a face book 'e-mail' message and the chat pops up, ever letter it 'caught me' typing, firefox will go 'back' that many pages. (goodbye 'e-mail' message i was typing).

It also locks up my Firefox browser so that I can't type at all. I have to minimize my Firefox browser to be allowed to type letters. Any keys hit on the key board are equivalent to hitting firefox's 'back' button.

SOOOO annoying!!

Re: Having problems with Facebook chat.

Facebook is a very buggy application I doubt it's your computer or internet connection because i have a fairly new computer and a cable internet connection and it does that to me too. I don't know if theres anything you really CAN do other than refresh the page and keep logging in and out. hopefully sometime in the future facebook can fix this annoyance

Re: Having problems with Facebook chat.

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.

Re: Having problems with Facebook chat.
Thnks a lot seriously! you should bring that up to everyone who has the same problem because there are lots of people that suffer from the same issue and have no idea how to solve it!
