I am not able to send my text messages on the Chat screen on the side of my monitor while playing on a table. But I can read the messages on the same screen from other players. I was able to chat previously when the chat bar was located at the bottom of the screen. Please help what I should do to be able to chat on this new chat sceen. Thanks.

Look at the bottom of the BBO window, there should be a grey horizontal line at the bottom. Place your mouse cursor on it, click and drag that line up towards the center of the screen. This moves the chat area back to the bottom of the table.

I have had possibly related problems. I can find that grey box where the chat messages go all right. But if I click that box and start typing no text appears in that box!

This happened to me once last week. Just 10 minutes ago it happened again. Last time logging off and relogging in helped. Today that didn't help, but while I was searching this forum for technical support the problem went away!

Can anyone figure out what is causing this?

My system: Windows 10, Firefox.

I have that happen sporadically. I think it's a flash/firefox thing. Simplest solution seems to be clicking in the URL bar and typing, then going back to the chat - that usually helps it regain focus somehow.

Make sure you have the destination set to "Table". Sometimes it defaults to "Kibitzers".
