Hi Guys,

Just to let you know I tried a myriad of workarounds mentioned above - but this FINALLY got it working.

1. Check that you're running Gwibber 2.30.2 (start gwibber, go into Help > About)
2. Run "firefox ~/.local/share/desktop-couch/couchdb.html" (no quotes). This will take you to Gwibber's settings.
3. Click on gwibber_accounts
4. Click on each key, and check that the protocol is not "facebook". If it is, click the 'Delete document...' link and remove it.
5. Repeat Step 4 unitl there are definitely no facebook keys.
6. Close Gwibber
7. Logon to Facebook and remove Gwibber from your apps list (comment #106 above)
8. Open Gwibber and try to add your account. Tick the box to always allow gwibber to log you in and allow the Gwibber app access to your account.
9. Pray that the Add and Cancel buttons appear (very important at this point)
10. If it does, click add and do a merry jig.

Good luck! Just to add, that this was incredibly painful to work out - so thanks to everyone above. Hopefully this will settle the authentication down... :|
