Empathy Logs me out of Facebook

Hi all. I'm running Ubunutu and started using empathy for it's web video support. I installed the facebook haze plugin, and it works on empathy, allowing me to im facebook friends. however, I think it is what keeps logging me out of facebook on firefox. I never had this problem with pidgin, when I had the facebook plugin.

Not too long ago Facebook implemented a security change so that you can only be logged in on one PC at one time using the browser session. Unfortunately these plugins will log you out of Facebook as Facebook will know that you have using chat via a different method as it'll have a different session ID.

Sorry, it's just one of those things.
