Adium & Facebook
If you’re like me, and been unable to log in to your Facebook chat through Adium for months… This is the fix:
Basically, when adding your Facebook account, Adium opens some webpage asking you to login. I always logged in using my e-mail address (as… that was what the page was actually asking!).
I always managed to successfully login. Facebook then asked to identify my device (“Adium” or whatever).
However, here the problems started. Whenever I clicked save, I just ended up on the same page again, asking me to fill in my device name.
Checking my devices in Account Settings, I saw a million Adiums got added (because of my spam clicking/trying)…
I even tried to disable the “login approvals”, thinking that had something to do with it… But alas.
Thinking it had something to do with cookies (session cookies not/wrongly saved or something by Adium) I updated to betas… Many times, and still no fix. This was becoming annoying and pretty odd. Was I the only one have this problem?
I then tried, instead of using my email address, to use my actual account name (“facebook.com/YOUR-ACCOUNT-NAME”). And guess what… 😉 Yea, I could log in, add the device correctly, and Facebook chat went online right away.
