This almost certainly means that you did not enter the information

Make sure that you put only the portion before the @ in the username
field, and only the portion after the @ in the domain field.  Also,
make sure that you are using the username provided on the facebook
page, which may be a numeric ID.  If you still cannot log in, delete
your pidgin facebook account and recreate it.  If you still cannot log
in, try changing your password on facebook.com and then changing your
Pidgin facebook password to match.


The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws [that have no remedy
for evils].  They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor
determined to commit crimes.
