Earlier this week I had to reset my Facebook password. Online Accounts requested me to grant access with the new login details; I mis-typed the new password several times, and got redirected to a secondary authorization page where I finally typed it correctly. Since then Empathy has been unable to connect to Facebook, and in fact telepathy-gabble has been crashing as a result.

I reset my Facebook password again, but this time did not even receive an authorization request from within Online Accounts/Empathy. I've also tried editing the password manually in the Gnome keyring. However, Empathy simply will not connect to Facebook any more (though there are no more telepathy-gabble crashes).

Is there any way to force Online Accounts to require me to re-authorize the account? Or any way, short of deleting the account, of fixing the current failure to log in?

I'm using Ubuntu 13.04.

Whoops! What an oversight. It's 13.04 -- I've updated the original question too. –  WebDrake Jul 30 '13 at 21:07
