Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1005584
Facebook authentification fails if account is created with GOA
Last modified: 2014-04-09 12:15:22 EDT
Description of problem:
A Facebook account can be successfully linked with GOA, but Empathy still fails to connect and throws a Athentification failure popup. Since the bug fix update of telepathy-gabble pushed as a result of bug #1004325, Facebook works if the account if linked from Empathy directly, instead of using GOA.
Tried on 2 computers running up-to-date Fedora 19 x86_64, 100% reproducible.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open GOA, Settings -> Online Accounts
2. Link your Facebook Account
3. Launch Empathy
A pop-up warns about the athentification failure. None of my Facebook contacts is shown in Empathy.
My Facebook contacts should be shown in Empathy.
I have no other account sync'd besides Facebook. Again, Facebook works if GOA is bypassed and the account is sync'd directly from Empathy.
I can confirm this bug on another computer running up-to-date Fedora 19 x86_64. Facebook chat works if the account is configured from within Empathy, but authorization fails for Facebook accounts configured using GOA. Google+ and Windows Live accounts are unaffected.
Same issue here.
It doesn't work with Ubuntu/UOA/Empathy either. I am guessing something broke
at Facebook's end.

That is because when you are using GOA it is using a different SASL mechanism -- namely X-FACEBOOK-PLATFORM . Otherwise you are using DIGEST-MD5.
Still happening in Gnome 3.10 (Fedora 20 alpha)
This bug is reported upstream and fixes has been pushed to master for 3.10
