You'll need the Firefox Web browser and an add-on that works with the browser and your Facebook account to save your chat messages. Once you have downloaded the add-on and logged into your Facebook account with it, your messages will automatically be saved to your selected destination. You may then view your chat message history whether you are online or offline.

    Click the "Tools" menu. Select the Facebook Chat History Manager. Click "Export History."
