This is the error I get when trying to add facebook to my pidgin....

Plaintext Authentication

ambergordy216 at chat.facebook.com/ may require plaintext authentication over
an unencrypted connection.  Allow this and continue authentication?

when I click yes it says denied...

When I click no it just disables it...

I am using *Pidgin 2.7.9* (libpurple 2.7.9)

face book settings

username: my username
domain: chat.facebook.com
resource: blank
password: my password

under advanced.

use encryption if available
I have tried this part several ways...
Plaintext Authentication
and clicked it.

neither works
connect port 522
connect server is blank
file transfer proxies: proxy.eu.jabber.org

Under Proxy tab: use global proxy settings
