I can no longer Publish from LR3 to Facebook (FB) since I had to change my FB account password (someone had tried to hack my account). I right click the account in LR3 and select edit settings. I then clicked on the Authorize on Facebook button (since its no longer authorized). This opens up my web browser and brings me to the Facebook login page. I enter my user name and password and then it opens up a Request for Permission page. It says, "Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is requesting permission to do the following - Manage my Pages -Adobe Photoshop Lightroom may login as one of my Pages". There is an icon on the right to click on in order for it to be able to do so, but it is grayed out so I can do nothing. What do I do to correct this ongoing problem? I've deleted the LR app within FB but it still wont work. This is driving me completely nuts. Thanks in advance for any and all help provided.

Did you try logging in to Facebook in your browser before you tried to authorize from Lightroom? I don't know if that will help, but it's worth a try.

I finally figured it out. I had to log into FB using Internet Explorer and delete the LR app. Then I had to go into LR and reauthorize through Internet Explorer as Firefox does not display the page correctly to Allow the use of LR in FB. I clicked Allow and not it works just fine. This took too long for me to figure out, but I did it finally.
