I think yuou should mention how you have to be Logged out of Facebook before you click on the Facebook Chat in the toolbar. I was logged in at Facebook first, and when I clicked on the Facebook Chat on the toolbar, nothing showed up. It worked once I looged out of, and then logged in from that the Toolbar.
