The buttons and all work perfectly in IE 8 but they don't show in Firefox 3.6.13.
Can't logout after I've logged in via Facebook Login. Even if I logout from Facebook.com I just can't logout without closing the browser.

Other then that it's a cool plugin.

Tested on FireFox 3.6.13. Is that your browser security settings probably that causes this?

Do you click the logout button on your site or you first click logout in FaceBook and then on your site?

I click the logout button on the website, but I do think the problem is the browser, it's my .htaccess settings for caching .js files that causes the problem, since it's set to caching for 7 days. I will give it a try this weekend, since it's a brilliant plugin.

Очень сильно тормозит весь сайт, скорость загрузки страниц с 0.3 секунды падает до 1-2 секунд. В прошлом проекте успешно использовал, такого вроде бы не было, или я не разобрался? Тормоза из за подрузки с ФБ двух кнопок в хидере? Или из за скриптов в конце страницы? Можно ли с этим бороться? Кнопки повесить (дизайн кнопок) свои и указать на них урл к примеру? Может есть какой то кеш? У кого есть позитивный опыт с этим расширением - поделитесь плиз.
