My Facebook chat is not working. What can I do to fix this? If your Facebook chat is not working then you can take several ways to fix the problem. Then there are times when you just have to wait it out.
When you run into the Facebook chat problem it can usually be solved by simply using a different browser. There are many different browsers that you can choose from. The main browsers are Opera, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. All of these browsers are fully supported by the Adobe Flash plug-ins and the Java plug-ins.
Another thing that you can do, as far as the Facebook chat not working correctly, is to reset your browser the factory settings. Many times, you can run into a problem with Flash Content and Java with viruses. If you have Internet Explorer as your default browser then you can do this by going to options from the “Tools” menu. There you will be able to find the advanced options section. At the bottom of the advanced options section you should find the option that allows you to reset all settings to default for Internet Explorer. This erases all data stored by Internet Explorer. That means you should back up your favorites, cookies, and other settings if you plan on keeping them.
For other browsers, you can try to reset the settings of the other browsers, but it is usually better to simply uninstall and reinstall them. This may also fix the problem that you are having with the Facebook chat.
Then there are the times when there is nothing wrong at all on your end. There have been times where bugs with certain updates will confuse you. One of the recent updates shows your Facebook chat in a cloud. The cloud is made up of people who are currently online. However, there are many people who claim that nothing happens when they click on the cloud. In some cases, you will have to click multiple times before the dialog box that allows you to type a message to your friend to pop up.
