Okay I have found the solution to block this status.
Basically Facebook uses a timer and so it will send a heartbeat message to their servers with the idle time every x minutes.
Here is an example of such web request:
Facebook Messenger statuses aren't accurate. My fiancé and I had the same problem. When he says he's going to work but yet after a couple of hours it'll still say he's "active now". As he never brings his phone to work, I called his work place and confirmed he arrived on time and was clearly working. There are a few times that both of us are in the same room ...
Based on comments I know that you don't have any other devices connected (which is a big first thing to check if others have this problem in the future). And you have tried the 'traditional' turn off chat:
This is not a duplicate of How can I log out of Facebook chat?. It
says “Turn off chat” on that question's answer but I say “I turned off
chat but ...
I mostly use the mobile website http://m.facebook.com/messages
Besides the chat functionality of course, it gives me:
Cross platform access without being dependent on installation rights.
No Facebook icon in my taskbar (annoying if you're working at consultancy).
No Windows notifications when you have a new message.
Quick access to my timeline ...
Is there a character limit on Facebook private/direct messages?
The limit is 20,000 characters.
Does this differ when submitting a message on a mobile device as opposed to a regular desktop browser - or on the message page as opposed to the chat window that appears in the corner of the screen?
This is either something only a Facebook engineer will know ...
They only support client to server XMPP, not server to server XMPP.
Facebook Chat should be compatible with every XMPP client, but is not a full XMPP server.
So you can use any XMPP client for the Facebook Chat, but you can only chat with other Facebook users.
Which is a pity. Welcome to the 90s.
The moment you click 'mark as read'..it will be notified to the other person as 'seen so and so time' ..I've experimented..no need to doubt..whether you view the message and later mark as unread or you don't view the message at all but simply mark it as read..either way it'll show 'seen' to the other person..
You could either use THIS FIREFOX Extension
You can download all of your facebook data via facebook itself!
Here's a quote from the facebook help button>search: "download"
How can I download my information on Facebook.
You can download your information from the Account Settings page.

Here's how I get around it using Android Chrome:
Go to m.facebook.com
Click on the Chrome menu dropdown on the far right of the address bar
Toggle the "Request desktop site" option
Now click on the FB messages tab
You may not have the desktop site option depending on your phone. I'm not aware of any other way to do this.
From Facebook Help Center:
No, sent messages can't be unsent or removed from the person's inbox. Depending on the persons's notification settings, they may also receive your message as an email notification.
Keep in mind that deleting a conversation from your inbox won't delete it from your friend's inbox. It isn't possible to delete sent or received ...

Whether you're new to Facebook or not is irrelevant, earlier, all Facebook messages to a person you're not connected & provided the other person has allowed for all to message, were delivered to the 'Other' folder
Off late, Facebook allows you to send a message directly to the Inbox, instead of the other folder for a fee. This isn't a 'check-for-spammer-...
Another Chrome extension: Facebook™ Chat Privacy
Facebook Read Status Disabler automatically blocks "seen" + "is typing" status confirmations in Facebook Chats and Messages.
The extension has overwhelmingly positive reviews at the Chrome web store.
I have started receiving notifications again! Like others, I did not have any options in notification settings that related to emailing messages.
It looks like Facebook integrated chat with messaging. I discovered that when logging into Facebook, missed messages would appear as chat windows. After turning off Chat (chat window > bottom right > settings cog)...
Facebook does not delete old messages/conversations that haven't been active in years. (my oldest one: 2007-05-30). Note that at that time people often used to post on walls to discuss even private matters.
At the top of the Facebook website is a blue bar, and towards the right side of that are several icons. Click on the icon that looks like two overlapping speech bubbles. At the bottom of the box that pops up, there will be a link reading "See All"; click that. You arrive at the Messages inbox. Click on any name in the list on the left to view conversations ...
Click on the gear icon at the bottom of the chat sidebar,
choose Advanced settings,
choose the 2nd option, "Turn off chat for all friends except..."
In the text box that appears, enter the names of all those that you
wish to whitelist. (Or create a list in Friends settings, and enter
the name of the list)
One Caveat, a friend that ...
https://www.facebook.com/help/936247526442073 subtly indicates you must check this special box manually.
It Facebook's forums, their authorized personnel directly stated it:
No, once an account is deactivated it will not receive any message. After reactivating it will store only that data what all were present before deactivating.
When an account is deactivated it will not searchable and no one can message to that person.
Turn off chat for all contacts except that person.
Here you go:
Login to Facebook
Click on Options (gear icon) in the chat section, on the bottom right side
Select Turn Off Chat
Select Turn off chat for all contacts except...
Click on Okey
Do the same thing to Turn Off Video/voice Calls
After above changes you (or her) will be offline for all your ...

When your message is delivered, it will be marked as sent. If your message fails to send, you'll see a message saying that it didn't go through and you'll have the option to send the message again.
It means your message already has been delivered.

Assuming you are using Facebook messages via a desktop browser, you have plenty of options among the answers here. If you are using Facebook messages on a mobile device, try PrivyChat for Android or Unread for iOS.
No, it isn't possible to know if someone if online and has just set their status as offline. It may arise a privacy concern.
But there's a way to know if someone is online or not by checking their profile, check if they recently liked status, page or anything which can indicate that they are active. But it won't always work.
There's another ...
