Looking to you're thread title are you in danger ?
What about telling as some use full information like which distro you using and which browser and when it happens and so on

Welcome!!

First, please change your thread title to something more descriptive. (Click on edit and then the advanced mode)

For your actual question, we will need some more detail. For starters, what does "cutting off" mean? Also, waht version of Linux, what browser, what kind of internet connection?

Something descriptive of your specific issue---"need advice" tells us nothing. How about: "facebook chat problem with firefox"

Except for chat, does Facebook work correctly?

Is it possible that it needs Flash and/or Java? Do you have both of those installed and working?

Have you tried a different browser?
