I have uninstalled Firefox refreshed Firefox disabled and removed some add ons. But I still get Facebook chat currently unavailable. Just started in the past two days. I have tried contacting Facebook about the issue got no answer. I went to GetHuman for a solution and Just answer they could not solve the problem I was told to make Chrome my broswer. I like Firefox and want to keep it as my default browser. I may have to go to Chrome if this issue is not resolved

It's definitely a FB problem despite the fact that it doesn't happen with Chrome or IE; report it every day until fixed.

I am really getting annoyed at the fact that I keep getting chat unavailable. It is only happening on Firefox. can someone please look into this is there some kind of glitch.I have send many reports to Facebook . it appears to me that no one either at Firefox or Facebook cares to address the problem.I have been a loyal Firefox user for several years and have up to now liked Firefox because of the extensions and the layout. But I am seriously thinking of going to Google Chrome which I am not really crazy about. Please some one address this problem
