What version of gwibber do you have? I tried to open some links of my facebook account and I am unable to reproduce this issue. Please could you upgrade your gwibber version to the latest included in Lucid and check if this issue is still affecting you? Thanks in advance!

You are right @guigui, if I click on sender time and now I am able to reproduce this issue under Lucid too. Also I tried to reproduce this using gwibber daily version (up to date) and I don't get a crash but output this message:

It's work in publication but in Image I have a problem too by clicking on the time (I think it's the same bug) in PPA version 3.31.1bzr676
