    Happens on multiple WP blogs. (Hosting: HostGator)

    URL is specifically copied/pasted from Settings page to "Site URL" in the Facebook app.

    Tried: disabling all other plugins; creating a second app, disabling/re-enabling ALTF; Logging out/in to Facebook.

    I have answered your question here.

    Just so people in the WordPress.org forums can see your reply:

    "Double check that the red URL the plugin indicates on the settings page is exactly the same as the Facebook Website > Site URL and that the Facebook App Domain field is empty. Note that you have to click on ‘Website’ to ‘open’ this field."

    The second line of my first post stated that the URL is identical, having been directly copied and pasted from the ALTF Settings page.

    And in both cases, the Domain field is empty.

    Unfortunately Facebook thinks otherwise.

    And to copy the rest of the answer:

    The type or brand of hosting does not matter. The URL Facebook is requested to redirect to by the plugin should be exactly the same as the one configured on Facebook. The plugin requests a redirect to the red URL shown and therefore this should be exactly the same on Facebook. This is an important Facebook security measure.

    Send me the debug information as explained in the last question of the FAQ and a screenshot of the Facebook App settings page using this contact form and I will try to find out what is wrong.
