Recently my Facebook account stopped working with Ubuntu. It was showing up as being unverified, and when I tried pressing the "Grant Access" button, it just opened up a page on Firefox that just contained the plaintext, "Success". The URL was something about a successful Facebook login.

I tried removing the account and re-adding it, but the same thing happened and it failed to add.

Any idea what's going on and how to resolve this?

"Something about a successful Facebook login" is pretty vague. Can you be (a whole lot) more specific about what you're trying to do? What are you trying to add your FB account to? Are you accessing it through a browser? Which browser? – Amanda Feb 26 '13 at 2:16
