[B2G][Contacts] There is no effective way to update current Facebook contacts

If the user wishes to update new Facebook contact information (ie. Current living, Phone number, Photos), the user has to remove the contact from Sync friends and go back into Sync friends and upload them again. And if the contact is already in the phone the user has to link that contact with the Facebook contact every time they wish to manually update the contact.

Repro Steps:
1) Updated Buri 1.3 20131211004003
2) Have one contact that was synced with out dated Facebook information (old address, old profile picture).
3) Select contacts app.
4) Attempt to manually update the Facebook contact information.

There is no simple way to manually update the contact's Facebook information via the Contacts app. The User is forced to removed Facebook contacts, reinstall those Facebook contacts, and link any duplicate contacts to update a contact's information.

There is a one step "Information update" button that does not require the removal of that/other contacts to be manually updated.

That's not true. Everytime you click on 'Update Facebook Contacts' in contact settings the FB  info is conveniently updated.
