Description

Seems Facebook has changed its security settings.
Export to Facebook now returns the following ...

"Facebook has detected that darktable isn't using a secure connection to transfer information."
"Until darktable updates its security settings, you won't be able to use Facebook to log in to it."

I don't get why people still use Facebook after Cambridge Analytica. If it were up to me, I would remove dt's support of FB export just for that.

Indeed.
No point offering a function that will not work!

I've just tried this in DT 2.6.0. The function is still there and it's still broken.

Viable workaround: export JPGs to files, upload files to Facebook.
Unviable workaround: stop using Facebook.

That's too bad.
