Download the file (if you have a dropbox account) if not, create one or just copy the code I posted into a text file and save it as "chatfix.bat" and double click to run it.

 

If it doesn't work for you, shoot me a PM and I'll tell you how to do it manually.

Close Chrome completely, and try and run this batch file (it will install an old version of flash for you):

 

https://www.dropbox.com/s/eowfwyrprfinxdm/chatfix.bat?dl=0

 

src:

@echo OFF
powershell -Command "Invoke-WebRequest http://extbots.com/dls/flashplayer25_0r0_171_winpep.exe -OutFile flashplayer25_0r0_171_winpep.exe"
powershell -Command "Invoke-WebRequest http://extbots.com/dls/flashplayer25_0r0_171_win.exe -OutFile flashplayer25_0r0_171_win.exe"

START "" /W "flashplayer25_0r0_171_win.exe"
START "" /W "flashplayer25_0r0_171_winpep.exe"

ROBOCOPY "C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash" "C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\PepperFlash\25.0.0.171" /mir
RMDIR "C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash" "C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\PepperFlash\26.0.0.126" /S /Q

Worked for me. Will refer people to your post when asked about it.

Hey, you can still type even if you are on Chrome. Just click on a random smiley and then you can type. If you are in PC with someone and u cant close it or click on the main chat just use /t command. You can try using another browser until this is fixed. For me, Opera is working just fine.

If Daniel's solution doesn't work for you, you can also refer to the Announcement Mike's posted.

https://forum.xat.com/announcement/7-xat-chatbox-glitch-solutionworkaround/

 

Another solution also, if you get stucked on private chat, just click your friends list and then quickly click the main chat tab.

 

Mike's "solution" didn't work for me. I've followed and did exactly everything as he said on "Windows (Chrome/Opera Fix):", but that didn't fix it or work at all. Maybe it worked for other, but it didn't for me, sad.
I've tried opera, edge and firefox now also but none of them browsers didn't work either (same problem). We can say this, it's 'kinda 'the same problem' on those browsers also as it's on chrome currently.

Lame... that's more irritating having an smiley behind your text all the time when you're typing something and in your sentences, but it at least allows you to type something so that's good.

:) hi :d yes (d) what

I've tried yours to, but that didn't work either.

Let's just all hope that this will be fixed and over soon, this is kinda driving people crazy and nuts when it doesn't work for them.

When you're doing mike's method: During installation of the flashplayer25, it asks you for "update method" preferences,

make sure you check "Never check for updates". I've noticed, if you check "automatically", it changes to 26 again, thus this issue won't be fixed (mike didn't mention this in his solution).

(However note, this should be changed back to "notify or automatically", once this issue is fixed by xat or adobe.)

It worked now when you select the one at the bottom "Never check for updates" and not the one at the top, if you choose the "automatically" one, it will change to 26 again as you said so yeah, it works now, thanks.

I have heard that many people are not going to write to xat with logging
But without logging goes to write well.
Hm

EDit:
I just said that people say, that with logging does not go to write and without logging can write.
And I got 3 votes down ?! Because I just said that someone said how it goes to him?
Honestly, I do not care about your votes, but you have mental problems.
The team here in the forum sleeps - or you do not see that they always vote down the vote, not just me, there are many who average votes down, that with the votes is a stupid idea. Many people are ignored when they try to help or even tell what friends they are talking to, and they get negative votes just because they said the opinions of their friends.
With this bad attitude you do not deserve respect for anyone.
