Do a reinstall of the complete program, these boxes are known to be buggy because facebook doesnt have the best developers. Also try updating drivers, windows updates, and .Net framework is also a good idea. Also if i can clarify the box doesnt show anything, only when you are actively moving the windows you can see a glimpse of what is supposed to be there?

Hopefully I have given you some insight to this problem.

Make facebook my home page, facebook keeps dissconnecting me


Is it just facebook or your internet connection ??..
The Facebook Chat feature allows you to send and receive messages in real time with friends who are online.
Your chat box reveals a list of available friends you can chat with by clicking their names.
For those times when you're not up for chatting, you can choose from several different privacy options, including disconnecting Facebook Chat.
You can opt to disconnect it completely, or just partially allowing chat availability for certain people and not others.
You can reconnect in a few quick steps.
Facebook Chat Availability

Your Facebook Chat availability determines how you appear in your friends' chat lists.
When you're logged in to your Facebook account, your name appears in the chat sidebars of any friends who are currently logged in.
When you set your chat preference to available, a green box appears next to your name.
When you're available, but idle, a grey moon appears next to your name.
When you're unavailable, your name appears without an icon.

Adjusting Chat Availability
Adjust your chat availability to control the visibility of your name in friends' chat lists.
Sign in to your Facebook account and click the "Chat" box in the lower right corner of any page to open your chat list.
Click the "Options" icon in the upper right corner of the box.
Click "Go Offline" to disconnect your chat availability.
If you're using the Facebook Chat sidebar, click the "Options" icon in the upper right corner of the box. Click the "Chat" box to open the sidebar if it isn't showing up on your home page.
Click the "Available to Chat" option to delete the check mark, making yourself invisible and unavailable to chat. Click the "Limit Availability" option and use the resulting pop-up to choose which friend lists you wish to remain visible to. This allows you to chat with some friends without others knowing you're logged on.
Disconnected Facebook Chat
Once you disconnect Facebook Chat or limit your chat availability, your online presence will be invisible to other users.
You can still browse the Facebook site as you would normally.
The appearance of your chat list won't be altered by your availability; you'll still be able to see which of your friends are online and available to chat.
That is, as long as their chat availability isn't hidden or disconnected.

Your Chat Messages

If a friend attempts to message while your Facebook Chat is disconnected, the message will be delivered to your Facebook inbox.
You'll receive an on-site notification, as well as text or email notifications if you're set up for that, alerting you that you have a new message in your inbox.
Click the "Message" icon that appears in the upper left corner of any page upon signing in to your Facebook account.
Any new messages will appear in the drop-down list. Click the "See All Messages" link at the bottom of the box to access your inbox and respond to any messages.

How do I use Facebook?


All you need to chat on Facebook is a Facebook account, nothing to download or install. When you log into Facebook you're automatically logged into Facebook Chat so you can chat on Facebook. Just go to your Facebook page and you can start to chat on Facebook right away. At the bottom of every Facebook page you'll see your Facebook Chat tools. The first of the three Facebook Chat tools is the online friends tool. This simply tells you which of your Facebook friends is online right now. The next Facebook Chat tool is notifications which will let you know if you have any new Facebook notifications right from the tool. The third tool in Facebook Chat is the actual chat tool.

I want to thalk in facebook.


Facebook affords its users several means of communicating with one another, from public posts made to the collective News Feed and individual users' Walls to direct, private messages. Facebook also allows for real-time chat communication between users who are both online -- this doesn't, however, include an option to chat using video as of this writing.

How Facebook Chat Works

Facebook chat functions much in the same way as standalone chat clients, such as AOL Instant Messenger and Windows Live Messenger. To chat with another user on Facebook, he must be one of your contacts and also be online. Two categories of online friends exist: Available and Idle. Available friends, which appear at the top of your chat list and have green dots next to their names, are actively using the site and, therefore, more likely to be available for chat. Idle users are not actively using Facebook, and although they're signed in, they may not be at their computer to chat.
Chat Capabilities

Facebook Chat is simple and, as of this writing, permits you only to send text in most cases. The one exception is in the case of emoticons. If you type ":)", for example, a yellow smiley face appears. Beyond this, Facebook Chat's list of features is rather limited. If you don't want to chat within the main Facebook interface, you can pop out the chat box and continue your conversation in a separate window. You can also make yourself go offline if you don't wish to chat with others or to let them chat with you.
Links and Videos

Although you may direct others to pictures, videos and other multimedia within chat -- namely, via text links to the URLs at which they're hosted -- it's not possible to embed images and videos themselves within a chat message. Furthermore, Facebook Chat isn't capable of video chatting, such as programs like Skype and Windows Live Messenger. If you want to communicate with one of your Facebook friends via video message, you won't be able to do so using Facebook Chat.
Skype Workaround

One potential workaround to Facebook not having video chat among its features is using Skype's Import Contacts feature. In addition to being able to import contacts from email clients such as MSN Hotmail and Gmail, you can enter your Facebook credentials and cross-reference your contact list to see which of your friends are also using Skype. After you've done this, use Skype to make free video calls with your Facebook friends who use the program.

Im online on facebook but i appear offline to my friends im so frustrated ;i cannot chat also. please help me


Hello thanks for using fixya
Actually your status on Facebook is as "Offline", thats why you are not able to chat with your friends and you appear them as "Offline"
To chat with your friends and make you visible you have to make your status as "online"
For this sign in your Facebook account, when your home page will open, On the left side down on the page there will be written that "you are currently offline to chat with your friends "Go online". Click on it and your status will become online.
To demonstrate it physically here given is a Picture which will surely help you out

Tried to look for a way to view who's signed on to Facebook Chat without having Facebook chat activated. Sometimes Facebook chat is a nuisance, and just want to turn it off. This way, i can turn it off...


'Appear Offline' lets you do that! Allows you to see who's signed on to Facebook Chat without having Facebook chat activated. You can poke and send Facebook messages to your online contacts from the Appear Offline page.
