Why the Facebook like button is replaced by a Sign-in button?

I've placed a Facebook "like button" on my site and everything worked fine until recently, when it was automatically replaced by a green "sign in" button with the text: "Find us on Facebook. Create an account or Log In to see what your friends like". The button leads to the following url: http://www.facebook.com/campaign/landing.php?campa...

I have no restrictions based on country or age, everyone is allowed to become a fan on my FB page, so I don't see why they would have to sign in? It also ruins the look of my site. How to solve this problem? I found other people who have the same problem, but no solution. Thanks.

Thanks

Update:

RE: @Insidius "Does the problem go away when you sign in to Facebook first?"

Yes, the problem doesn't appear if I'm signed in to FB. I would like the "like box" widget to appear as it was before, for all visitors, regardless if they are signed-in or not (some dont have a FB account, but they could still see the like box, the button and the number of fans). The html code for the widget can be found here: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plug... I copied the iframe code. I'm afraid that maybe FB modified it in some way?

Update 2:

RE: @Insidius: "EDIT: Well, it appears you have answered your own damn question and have a hard time accepting the reality of the situation."

I'm afraid that you don't have any useful info to offer me. Thank you and goodbye. Is there anyone else who actually knows the causes and solutions for this problem? Here are further details: When I copied the code for the like-box, I wasn't warned in any way that one day Facebook may put something else there, which is a terrible misconduct from their side!

There are milions of sites with like-boxes and their visitors are never obliged to sign-in to see them. Exceptions apply if the FB fan page has an age or country restrictions, but there's no such thing on my page. Many other webmasters face this problem, so a reasonable answer is very welcomed. Please no trolling. Thank you.
