Default messenger from facebook lunch issue

i cannot run messenger from within facebook app.
when i tap the contact it looks like facebook app is sent to the background (screen is not responding, except the system bar) and nothing is showing up. when i click back button, facebook is back.
i have no problem launching messenger on its own by tapping the icon on my homescreen.

i was trying reinstalling both apps but with no improovement.

pls help
