    Yeah, got the old facebook chat back.
    At the left side I got the pictures from the online friends

    But… the chatlist on the right (that you can unfold and start your chat) is empty. How can I get that back to old style. I’m using firefox.

    • Akshay says:

      now facebook itself have updated back to chat with scroll bar..just uninstall the above script and you will get the chat list with scroll bar

      • Ilse Bakker says:

        I guess I’m not clear in my explanation. I do not want the new version but I want to return back to the old version where the scrollbar works.

        The scroll bar of the old facebook chat is not working.

        • Akshay says:

          you can even activate new time line profile in facebook :
