That sucks hard. I'll have to go in and re-test the Facebook integration by the end of the month.

Same here - after the facebook login page is displayed in the browser, it gets stuck in an infinite loop. Firefox gave the following message, however I can confirm that cookies are enabled:

The page isn't redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

Sorry for the ridiculously long wait on this one. It was horrible.

Ugh! Facebook is just such a pain. Every year they change the rules and the login API. It's almost like they want anything of significant age to break.

So, I have login working. You can get friend lists, which enables the sort-of-useful Facebook Scoreboard feature.

However, their "publish_actions" permission can no longer be asked for at the same time as the "user_friends" perm... so I'd need to add another step to the process to request that. And then I'd need to get them to sign off on the whole system *again*. I'll keep you updated as this progresses.

Then again, maybe Facebook will go the way of MySpace.

Thanks for looking in to it - it sounds nasty.  I've also been bitten by Facebook API changes in the past so I sympathise (which is why its so great to have the social APIs contained in Gamersafe) Laughing
