    I'm guessing Facebook chat is built on Java? Feel free to correct me.

    But this is my problem: I cannot close conversation boxes, I cannot click between chat windows - I'm clicking close, minimise - nothing happens. Totally unresponsive.

    I can't switch between conversations, it just doesn't work.

    • I installed the Mac OS Java update, nothing.
    • Thought it might be Safari, reset, deleted plist, nothing.
    • Installed Google Chrome, nothing
    • Installed FireFox, nothing.

    Any ideas on how to fix this?

    I travel a lot and Facebook chat is a great way to keep up with friends - please no negative Facebook comments, just a little help.. please :eek:

    Hiding the dock fixes the problem.

    Erm, what? :confused:

    I've now tried re-installing Safari and Chrome, no chance.

    It must be dock related. If the dock is hidden, its fine.

    If the browser window it too near the dock - nothing.
