    Trouble setting up Empathy for Facebook chat..

    When I try to set up an account with 'online accounts', I get an external FF window appear with this message:
    Code:
    Success
    SECURITY WARNING: Please treat the URL above as you would your password and do not share it with anyone.
    But it doesn't go any further, thus I can't use Empathy...

    Pidgin works fine, but it's not incorporated into the messaging system.

    I'm using Gnome-Shell 3.6, but it does the same thing under Unity.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers.

    No it's in 13.04, too! It's apparently some integration issue between Facebook & Ubuntu's Online Account thingy.

    I got around it by downloading and using Pidgin. Not quite as 'pretty' but very functional.
