Please see this thread about SSLv3 connections being blocked QuickChat for FaceBook and here https://developers.facebook.com/docs...isable-ssl-v30. Discussion is here Facebook account login is broken. Adding the facebook account in Accounts in webOS produces an account credentials incorrect error. This is the same error produced when trying to login at first use.

A patch to enable TLS connections is now required to use Facebook synergy. Please help. Thanks

Thanks for sharing. Between google and then facebook not syncing and giving login errors, I thought I needed to start progressively erasing apps & data, then content, then doctor to get it back to where I was last week. And this was after the system gave an error message that something was full and forced me to restore apps & data from HP server WebOS profile. And that took 5 tries to complete the restore (it kept hanging, usually around 90%).

As a mechanical engineer who loves webOS I'd be willing to support a patch with a donation. My coding skills are limited to creating visual basic Excel spreadsheets to and automation of CAD programs. Nothing that is much use for webOS or Facebook fixes. But a phone that doesn't let me upload pictures to Facebook is kind of a bummer.

I have switched to upload by mail. The tricky part is getting your upload address:
- visit x.facebook.com with on-device browser
- tap "Photo" on the status line (sorry, I have localized FB page, I translate back to English, so page elements may have slightly different names)
- you'll get information page about browser being unable to upload photos, providing your individual e-mail address for sending photos to FB.

I have just added the e-mail to contacts, as "FB Upload" for quick reference.

Nice. I forgot about uploading via email like that. I tested texting to that address and it worked but no caption. Seems the caption comes from the subject line. Anyone know how to specify a caption through text? I wonder if there's a "post via text" specific setting in fb. I think there is.

On webOS I don't think there is, but email is easy. Of course, that only takes care of posting pics.

Just putting in my vote for this getting patched. I can't really explain how it's failing in the way that it is -- my Veer of two days ago seemed to be synching contacts... new Veer doesn't. Perplexed.

Oh man... another one down.
I fear I'm not the man to bring TLS to legacy. Need to speedup work on LuneOS, then, right?
