Unable to log into FB on Ubuntu since it went down


When I try to login to FB since their crash I get a message that my user name and password are not connected to a FB account yet I have no trouble logging on with my IPad and chrome book. I found a suggestion about installing a program with prism-Facebook without success. Would appreciate any help.

I tried to change the password but I was told I had to login to reset my password which I am unable to do because FB does not recognize my original password and will not let me login. I am not sure the password is the problem because it works on my IPad and chrome book.

Hi JDWheel,

... you should then be able to reset your password when logged in on one of those other devices (iPad and ChromeBook).

Cheers.
