Facebook chat!

I talked about using the Facebook chat in a chat application like Adium and I thought it was really cool. I have figured out that it is not the best thing. It seems that the Facebook chat is not designed to be used to replace iChat, MSN, Yahoo Messenger, etc. The problem is if you leave Adium Facebook chat open and browse Facebook in the web browser at the same time. I couldn't figure out why I was always getting logged out of Facebook and I really thought it was bugs in the new interface. I finally figured out that the best thing to do is to log out of Adium Facebook chat before browsing Facebook in the web browser. The problem seems to be that Facebook doesn't accept two sessions open at the same time.

I have the problem though.

I have the problem and I use...
OSX 10.5.4, Adium 1.3.1 for chat and Safari 3.1.2 for browsing Facebook.

What are people using that don't have the problem?

Theres an app called Gabtastik thats basically a browser made specifically for Facebook chat. I haven't had any problems when having Safari open at the same time.

The fix seems to be to log out of Facebook in adium and in your browser. Then login using your browser, then login useing adium.

I experience this issue when I logout in the browser, and not in adium.
