For two or three days it was letting me in on either of two passwords, but forcing me to sign in all over again to access stuff like my own settings. Just for a giggle, it would then decide both passwords were incorrect, leaving me signed in enough to edit my profile or send emails, but locked out of everything else.
Eventually a very nice, very helpful woman got to my request for help and decided to reset my password. Obviously, it goes without saying, that the Facebook app had JUST settled down and started to behave itself, a day before help arrived. Equally obviously, the new password is a short mix of letters and numbers that mean nothing to me. I don't like writing passwords down any more than I like relying on my Firefox password manager.
But that's OK, right? Because now I have a new password and Facebook is behaving itself, all I have to do is go into my account settings and pick a new one. And she is very nice and helpful and now that I have her attention she answers emails really fast.
Except now if I click on account settings it boots me back out to the sign-in page. It LETS me sign in (that's an improvement) but only back to my profile page, from whence I must click a link to the account settings page, at which point it boots me out again. And so on and so forth.
Does anyone have any better ideas? I have cleared the cache and cookies every five seconds, it seems, to no avail. I have rebooted the machine. I have even done a little dance of supplication, forced a smile and begged it, please, please, with sugar and a cherry on top, to
Oh, and just to make everything lovely in the garden, an Aussie newspaper has pointed out that the popularity of facebook and the race to supply add-ons has opened the door for malicious code, and identity theft.
I am so frickin depressed with it now.
