My friends list is not appearing at all even though I have anywhere between 9 -15 people online depending on the character. I ran a fix launcher.exe and it fixed it temporarily until I traveled somewhere else.

I can confirm this bug.
Clarification: The friends list in the social window is working correctly, only the social bar is bugged.
When you login to a character, change instances or load into a new area, you will no longer receive the regular "... is now online" messages. Because of that, the social panel does not show any friends to be online.
However, friends that later login/logoff will show with their online/offline messages, so this bug only applies to the messages on login. As soon as another friend is online, your social bar will say "Friends: 1" even though there are something like 11 friends actually online.

Screenshot to illustrate the issue:
Social bar says "Republic Fleet: 167, Guild: 1" (no friends), but Friends Window says "3 Friends online"

Note that because of the ongoing chat issues, this bug may just be a sideproduct of it and we'll need to wait for the current chat issues to be fixed before we can be sure that this is still bugged.
There is a similar bug where player login/logoff messages are not reported to the client.
However, since only the messages on login/area transition are missing, this may in fact be related to this bug, since channel joins are also not displayed when you login, but any new messages after that are.
