    Facebook Sidebar GONE on Internet Explorer


    Hey guys,

    I have no idea what's going on, my IE was working properly yesterday, then all of a sudden I hit refresh and there's no sidebar. Not in 32/64 bit, not in incognito mode, gone on both the metro and desktop versions. It's gotten quite frustrating now as I am unable to have any kind of interaction with chat, there's just nothing there.

    Anyone else having this issue and maybe a solution?

    Thanks in advance.

    What update? I have no idea. My cousin also has the same issue on his 8.1 Preview. Used to work and all of a sudden it went AWOL on both of us. Might as well do a system restore if it's update-related.
