[ubuntu] Gwibber not working

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Gwibber isn't working on my Ubuntu install. When I open it, it just shows icons at the top and a grey area under them. I've seen other threads and Ask Ubuntu posts about this, and there seem to be 2 solutions: disable the firewall and disable Facebook. I'm not using a firewall, and Facebook is the only service that I do use Gwibber for, so disabling it wold defeat the purpose of having it for me. Is there any other way to make Gwibber work?
