Hello,

Facebook Chat is Facebook's answer to instant messaging. IM, or chat on Facebook, is really quite easy. 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.

Take care.

    There are a few reasons as to why Facebook chat won't connect.

    1) Problems with your cookies
    2) Problems with proxy settings/VPN settings
    3) You're trying to connect with a Facebook chat tool that isn't compatible with a Facebook username
    4) You need to create a Facebook username (this isn't your email address)

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.

In my chat box the messages i send to my friends they don't receive it but when i send them same messages through messages they receive it


Chances are the friend to whom you are sending might be accessing Facebook via mobile. Mobile Facebook does not provide chat notifications appropriately and it depends on the device too. When you send message or chat,both are now equal in Facebook. Recent Facebook version,what it does is, it combines chat and message into message section. Whatever you chat is sent as message to the person,if that person is offline or not responding to chat. If at the time of receiving message,you are online,then you receive it in chat window. At the same time,you might see notification in Message area.

Eventhough it is to an extent confusing,either way,you can reply/chat and you get all messages. In short,your message never gets lost. It gets to your friend. If he/she cannot see it in Chat,they can definitely see it in Messages section.

Facebook chat causes typing to cease when new messages are reciev


An out of the box solution is to download a Facebook Messenger such as Chit Chat for Facebook.
It'll let you use Facebook Chat from your desktop without having to use your web-browser. It's also got tabbed instant message window making it easier to talk to many people at once.
The other solution is to upgrade your web-browser to Firefox or Chrome which doesn't have the problem in my opinion.

Multiple pop-ups switching


Consider switching browsers, I've never had this problem with Google's Chrome or the latest version of Firefox.
Alternatively, consider using a Facebook Chat Messenger such as Chit Chat for Facebook that allows you to talk to talk on Facebook without your internet browser. Moreover, its tabbed instant message window allows you to see who has sent you an instant message whilst your typing to someone else - without swapping over to that new Facebook Chat message!
