If you're not logged into the forums, but logged into facebook, you'll now need to click the fb login button on your forum to have the hook log you in. The window will open for the usuall fb login, but then auto close itself and reload the page to let the hook log the user in. I originally had it so it automatically logged the fb user in, but this has just been changed to correct issue with 'bad browsers'. If something goes wrong on the client end, we can't have the js looping through reloads and redirects. This change corrects that.
My original fix for the 'bad browser' darcie discovered didn't resolve the issue completely. There's no way to build this fix without the proper values from the request/browser itself, which in a 'bad browser' can't be counted on. Killing that automatic action should resolve it.
When a 'bad browser' clicks an fb login button now, the page url is appended with a var to trigger the hook to check if the cookie that should have been set has been set. If not, it outputs a message that their browser isn't playing nice with us, and that they won'y be able to use the fb login/registration.
For the record, this should be a very rare occurrence. It's actually fortunate that darcie found it for us now, before this hook out in the wild.
