Here comes the gwibber.log.

Alex, Please could you also run in a terminal "pkill gwibber-service" and then run "gwibber-service -d -o" and attach all the output information as a separated file? Thanks

For me the problem seems to be solved. After the last update I had to authorize Gwibber again to access Facebook. Since I've done this it works fine. Should I still provide the requested data?

Alex, I've done exactly the same: deleted my Facebook account then authorized Facebook again.
It worked for 4 days, then this issue started to happen again...

Gwibber hasn't updated my Facebook streams in eighteen days now. Anything happening with this bug?

More than a month without a working Gwibber now. All resources going into the next Ubuntu release already?

Gwibber says the last feed was updated 64 days ago. Anything happening with this bug?

Gwibber still doesn't work in Natty but trying out the Oneiric Alpha 3 live CD, Gwibber again updates my Facebook feed. Any chance of seing a fix coming to Natty? After all, it's a while still until October.

Removing my facebook account (from Gwibber) and re-creating/authorizing it didn't help at all.
