This facillity officially launched on April 6, 2008, and the fact some user may not maximize this one-to-one chat because of lacking information. This article purpose is basicly simple: Optimize the usage.

To run the Facebook chat messenger from Firefox press Ctrl+Shift+B to open the Bookmarks Organizer. Now go to Organize -> New Bookmark, named it as you want and type this address: Also tick the check-box the says “Load this bookmark in the sidebar“.
