Facebook Not Authorized if password too long

Reported by: Locke74 Owned by: deryni
Milestone: Component: XMPP
Version: 2.7.9 Keywords: not authorized facebook too long password


Until today I could never successfully setup facebook chat on pidgin. turns out my password was too long for FB (22char). once i changed it to a password under 14 chars, Pidgin connected to FB perfectly.

since FB uses the XMPP i assume the same problem exists for XMPP servers. If i'm wrong, please re categorize this appropriately.

With what error was it failing? Can you set your password back to that length and get the Debug Window output from pidgin when it fails?

There are a number of moving parts involved here which could be causing the problem and without knowing more it isn't really possible to say which one it is.
