      Well facebook does not provides any way to officially downgrade the chat but this plugin will make a new interface for the chat which is similar to the previous version. Try this It will surely help you.

    you don’t need any plugins or anything, you can do it manually yourself.

    If you want to get rid of the new chat bar thing, if you click the little cog symbol, & untick “avaiable to chat” then “hide sidebar” it goes away & looks just like the old chat bar, thats how to get rid of it,

      @Mark If you untick available to chat you go offline …………..

    sorry for this stupid question, where will i install the script? could you give me a detailed steps on how to go about this process, if that’s okay. Thanks

    • Ashmeet Singh July 24, 2011 at 8:51 pm

      This is the detailed process. Its a browser script. It will install in you browser. It works on 2 browsers for now i.e Firefox and Google Chrome. If you are working on any of these you can follow the above process

    I use Google Chrome, I installed Facebook Chat Enhancer, restarted the browser, but the chat is still the same. What should I do?

    • Ashmeet Singh July 26, 2011 at 3:03 pm

      Well go to Tools -> Extensions and look for Facebook Sidebar Chat Reversion – Version: 1.4.10
      If you are not able to spot it repeat the process. If you have any other problem feel free to post another comment

    I got a problem with the google chrome. I keep repeating but nothing happen. The scripts successfully installed but still the the chat box not restore in the old version. It works in mozilla but not in google chrome. Any idea with this?

    • Ashmeet Singh July 29, 2011 at 8:14 pm

      @rey I found the thing that is going on with your system. Many of my other users also emailed me with the same problem. The problem lies with the script. It crashes on some particular PCs.
      Here is the another script that does the same job but does not crashes.
      Try it. http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/107159
      I don’t think you will have any problem with this. Install it the same way you installed the earlier one.

      Hope this helps
