Bug Description

Binary package hint: gwibber

I am using Gwibber 2.30.0.1 in Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
when ever i go and add a facebook account in broadcast accounts it shows the authentication button but when ever i click that button i receive the following page:

"Unable to load page

Problem occurred while loading the URL http://www.facebook.com/login.php?req_perms=publish_stream%2Cread_stream%2Cstatus_update%2Coffline_access&cancel_url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fconnect%2Flogin_failure.html&fbconnect=true&connect_display=popup&v=1.0&return_session=true&api_key=71b85c6d8cb5bbb9f1a3f8bbdcdd4b05&next=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fconnect%2Flogin_success.html

Cannot resolve hostname"

Any Suggestions?

Twitter is working fine.

Looks like lots of people are having this problem. The thing is, I had it working before and now it just does not work any more. Could it be that some recent update has damaged gwibber?
