I'm having a weird issue happen with Empathy while using Cinnamon as my DE. The issue is that Empathy doesn't want to connect to AIM or Facebook chat while using Cinnamon but everything seems to work fine when I switch to Pidgin. I literally have no idea where to begin as to how to resolve this.

Additionally, Empathy sends me to a weird oAuth success page while attempting to connect to Facebook. This happens regardless of DE (Unity, GNOME, etc) and it happens almost immediately when I login.

Does anyone have an idea why this might be happening? Let me know if you need any additional information!
