The Facebook chat has had it's problems lately, but I noticed just now that when you're on Facebook in full-screen safari, your chat will automatically extend to take up the full length on the right side. It pushes all the content left and makes the page off-center. If you exit full screen, the chat minimizes again and acts as normal. Interesting.

That's a new Facebook feature - if there's enough room on the screen, it will display its new chat-sidebar.

click on the sprocket looking icon in the chat sidebar and choose hide sidebar...
Yeah, but that makes you available when you click it and hide it, doesn't it? It does for me. I hate Facebook chat- would like to hide it and be unavailable or get rid of it all together. Thanks though (maybe I'm doing something wrong...)
