L'authentification à partir du plug-in Facebook retourne les messages d'erreur :
Firefox :
"Firefox ne sait pas ouvrir cette adresse car le protocole (lightroom) n'est associé à aucun programme."
Lightroom :
"La réception du jeton d'authentification a échoué."

Que faut-il faire ?

>> translated from French

authentication from the Facebook plug-in returns the error messages:
Firefox: "Firefox can not open this address because the protocol (lightroom) is associated with a program."
Lightroom: "The reception of the authentication token failed."

gives the same response as above when trying to set up facebook. Facebook worked fine for me in LR3.6. in LR4 on setting up you get to the page where it says lightroom is asking permissions and when you hit' allow' the above is formed and you get 'the protocol(lightroom) isn't associated with any program' message, Goes to the logged on page, and lightroom has the reception failed message .
It fails on both Firefox and IE I work fine publishing to Smugmug

Firefox is being passed the path to a local file or app when it is expecting a properly formatted protocol string.

It's hard to know exactly where this is failing. Firefox should be popping up a dialogue to browse to the app that controls the request, but this wouldn't work either.

Try authenticating using a different browser, and/or switch to Friedl's Facebook publish plug-in.

O.K., I just tried it in Google Chrome. Failed the same way. That makes 3 different browsers that fail. in each case I can find lightroom has been put into my apps. I then .remove it, try another browser and still no joy..
I'd really like to see Lightroom work instead of a third party plug in but if you guys don't figure this out soon I guess that will be the way to go.

Honestly, Friedl's plug-in is better than the default FB plug-in. And basically the same price.

Here's a solution:

Copy the URL that starts with "lightroom://com.adobe.lightroom.export.facebook/#access_token=..." from the browser into the clipboard.

Go back to Lightroom and click on "Done" of the authorisation dialogue. The authorisation will fail, but you can now click on the blue "Not authorized" link in Lightroom.

The latter will popup a dialogue box containing "lightroom://...". Now paste your clipboard contents into this dialogue (replacing the previous content) and accept.

Done.

P.S.: If your URL does not contain the "#access_token=" part (that is followed by a long string) then you may need to make another browser your default browser (IE appears to work).

No this does not work. There is no URL that looks like what you described.

Sorry hit send too quickly. All these solutions are base upon the same premise, copy and past a URL. I see no URL like what is being described. I go to FB and do my sign ins, and click allow, etc. but no URL pops up. This worked for me the very first time with Firefox no less. I had to uninstall Lr and reinstall and since it won't work.

Also, Friedl's plug in will not run either.
