Ignore the text mention below as it has outdated, and currently not working.
  1. Go to this page, (This is a mobile version of Facebook), and click on your friend's chat that you want to view. If you don't see your friend chat history, you can view more chat history by "See older messages" link. I assumed you have chosen a friend name "Nick".
  2. Once you are in the chat history of your friend "Nick", right click on "See Older Messages" and click on "Copy Link Location". Paste that link to any safe place, we need it later.

  3. Now, go to this page, (This is a desktop version of Facebook), and go to the chat history of the same friend "Nick". Now, while scrolling up, have a look on the top of the chat history number as mention in the following preview.

    You have to view that no. faster otherwise it will finish to load or you can disconnect your internet connection before scrolling up. Once you get that no. proceed the next step.
  4. In step 2, take a look on the copied code which will be look like,
    you will find a short piece of code inside copied code says "&start=5". The value should be 1,2,3,.....
    Now, remove that no. and replace it by "Loading older messages" no. that you have got from step 3.
    As per the preview, I should replace it by "&start=6983". Now, remove the piece of code which is in red color. For example, if I edit above code then the affected code will be look like as follows,
    That is the only code which is still working in 2016. Copy your edited code, and paste it in your browser. Voila! you are very close to your path. Just you have to click on "See Older Messages" at-most 10 times. You will get the first message of any your Facebook messages.
  5. Keep in mind, when you see your first conversation page, you will obviously want to view the next conversations, but you can't view it by clicking on "SEE Newer Messages" as it will redirect you to the current newer messages. To solve this issue. Once you are in the first conversation page, right click on "SEE Newer Messages" and click on "Copy Link Location". Paste the URL in your browser and delete the timestamp information from the link as "&last_message_timestamp=458338746" (as red color text in the first code in step 4). Once you delete this information hit enter to view the next page of your first conversation page.
