Yes, I'm getting the same issue. Contacts aren't being pulled in or linked together. In fact, the account does not even show up in my list of accounts from the settings menu. Using the Droid X's built in Facebook connection has the account listed, but it still won't pull in Facebook contacts...

From my fiddling, motorola's facebook sync and the facebook application sync don't seem to play nicely together. I'll blame motorola here for whatever they've done, but I cannot get the sync from the facebook or twitter apps to work, only the default facebook/twitter stuff included by motorola for use in their social stuff.
Try uninstalling facebook and using the built in motorola one first?

Same issue here. When I first set up the phone, the contacts showed up. I installed the facebook app, deleted the motoblur facebook account, then added the account back and now I can't get my contacts to sync with facebook. I have tried everything short of wiping the phone and I'm getting angry at the prospect of having to do that.
I have deleted my facebook account several times and added it back. I even tried another facebook account that I have. Unless there's something wrong with the facebook backend, it appears that the phone is simply not communicating with Facebook.
I'm about ready to take this thing back to Verizon and go back to my Incredible.

So i can't sync all contacts like i could on the droid, but mine appears to have synced the contacts that i had in my contact book. However Im def not receiving facebook messages like they claim you should be able to. I'll get emails with the messages and not in the messaging app.

I'm using the facebook touch site not app, but from when I first tried the moto's app grabbed my contact pics but not the app from market.
Also, I asked in another thread does anyone know how this is done? How does your phone detect contacts? Are they matching names? emails(don't think so because I only have a few contacts with emails, same for phone numbers, don't think all my contacts have their phone number in FB)

so to update, i tried a few fixes to get my FB pics to sync to no avail, so i did a factory reset, and that did it. moral of the story is to not download the market app if you dont want sync issues with the philblur FB.

Log-In with WIFI ON thats all it takes.
Before you do anything, make sure you Log OFF from Facebook on your Facebook for Android App. And also delete your Facebook Account from your Phone.
You can try deleting your Facebook App and reinstalling it from the market if you think is necessary, even if it doesn't come with the Sync all existing Contacts feature this steps should work.
I have no idea why it does not work with 3G, but WI-FI was the answer for me.
I know all the screenshots say 3G, thats because I already synced all my Facebook friends and I don't have Wi-Fi at my house.

Since other phone users claim the syncing works properly, I'd assume the two should not be required to work together on the X.
Does any Droid X user have contacts syncing properly through Facebook for Android running solo WITHOUT also logging in through the built in motoblur social networking app?

Re: Droid X wont pull Facebook contacts?
I'm having a similar issue. First noticed it when I added someone to FB that I knew was a contact on my phone, and the pic didn't add... Through some fiddling with both the blur app and the android one, i somehow was able to get SOME of my contacts pictures updated, but not all...
Here's where my issue is different, I simply thought, "Hey, I'll just remove both and add one at a time and see which one is giving me the issue." But now in my accounts settings, I can't remove the blur facebook. I also noticed that the password had to be wrong because there weren't enough characters in the little dots, and remembered that I had changed it a while back. Also unable to change that. . . I just keep getting "An error has occurred. Please try again." for both instances... Does that mean I have to do a factory reset as well? And by factory reset, that means I need to document somewhere all the apps/etc and then replace them once reset?
Thanks in advance, and sorry for the long post.
