Hi

As facebook chat is actually on the Facebooks servers this is not possible.

You can install a Browser plugin that will keep these and allow you to manage them, but you have to install that first before it will start tracking your chats.

One of the extensions is called "Chat History Manager"

Search for that in Facebook.
