Version info attached.

Describe your problem. Add as much detail as possible. GPGMail is not able to find the signature for incoming Facebook notifications, even though I have added their key, and restarted the GPG services with launchctl stop/start cycles to refresh the keychain. It also features no way for me to see which signature it's actually trying to verify here.

This may still be an issue, because they don't encrypt then sign, instead they encrypt and sign in a single step

What did you expect instead I expected to verify the attached signature, or at least identify which signature was used to sign the message.

Describe steps leading to the problem. 1) Install GPG Tools 2018.2.
2) Open GPG Keychain.
3) Import Facebook's signature using the key they supply on their site.
4) launchctl stop/start both org.gpgtools.macgpg2.shutdown-gpg-agent and org.gpgtools.Libmacgpg.xpc to refresh the keychain.
5) Open
6) Open a Facebook message.

Are you using any other plugins? None.
