Firefox Facebook Integration Lets You Chat With Friends From Your Browser

Now you can chat with your Facebook friends from directly within Firefox.

With a new Firefox feature, Facebook Messenger shows up on the side of your browser window. The integration allows you to see which of your Facebook friends are online, and chat just as you might from Facebook’s website without having it open in your browser window. The idea is that you can keep up with what’s happening on the social network without having to constantly switch between tabs in order to do so.

In addition to keeping up with chats, the feature also lets you see instant notifications when new comments are made on your posts and when you’re tagged in photos.



In beta for some time now, the release is the first implementation of Mozilla’s new Social API. While Facebook is the first to take advantage of the functionality, the API opens the opportunity up for other social networks, such as Twitter and LinkedIn, to take advantage of the feature as well.

This is just the beginning; Mozilla plans to add support for more features in the future, as well as support for multiple providers.

You can give Firefox’s Facebook integration a try now by downloading the latest version of Firefox and then turning the feature on from Facebook.
