Quote from Facebook:
As a follow up to a note sent to all developers using Comments Box v1, we will upgrade all sites to the new version of the Comments Box to ensure that Facebook users have access to the latest version across the web. Upon upgrade, ordering of the comments will shift from chronological to showing the most socially-relevant comments first. Also, please note that the upgraded version of Comments no longer supports custom CSS. You can upgrade today by adding the 'migrated=1' parameter to your existing <fb:comments> tag. Please note that once upgraded, you cannot switch back.

On 10 may 2011 old layout stopped working and seems Facebook has forced a change for old layout to new layout on their servers.

New layout does not support CSS yet. We will look and see how we can add functionality to support light and dark background templates in coming versions.

There is no more Like button, facebook has moved like feature to each comment and now users can like each comment individually.

I have a dark background site and with these changes, my plugins are no longer usable. The width of the plugins cannot be set either and I have large column layouts.

How soon will the plugins / modules be fixed and if I decide to request my money back, how can I go about it?

I too have a website with a dark background and now with these changes that means this plugin is useless to me, I can't read any comments users have left on my website, I purchased this product expecting it to work and it did work fine until this change.

What can be done about this, If the developer can't guarantee a fully functioning product then refunds should be in order.

Can someone please update us on where to from here?

This was addressed when new Layouts were released by Facebook. Latest layout offers light and dark colour schemes for dark and light colour websites.

Please open new threads for your questions as it gets hard to track if everyone starts hacking same thread.
