New Install, Now Pidgin Won't Connect to Facebook

I just did a fresh install of Linux Mint 13. Prior to the fresh install, Pidgin was working with Facebook fine. Now it tells me I'm not authorized to connect to Facebook. I'm using the Facebook (XMPP) plugin to connect since the regular Facebook plugin never works. I'm using my Facebook username, not my email address, and the password I always use to connect to Facebook. How can I get this to work?

Hi xjonquilx,
Take a look at Faceboock's note about Pidgin's usage (you need not Facebook plugin):

It started working again on its own. I guess it was a Facebook error.
