If the user attempts to import contacts from a Facebook account, but takes a detour to the account creation page first, the status page for Facebook will load instead of the account's contact list.

Repro Steps:
1) Update Buri to Build ID: 20140131004001
2) Advance through the FTE until the Import Contacts page is reached.
3) Select the Facebook button.
4) Select the Create New Account button, then the Already Have An Account? link.
5) Enter a valid username and password then tap Log In.
6) Observe the page that loads.

The Status page of the mobile Facebook app appears.

A list of the Facebook account's contacts is loaded.

I think this out of our control. This would require TE work to get FB to serve us something different.

As this issue would only effect a very small percentage of our user base, and only occurs when the user takes a detour to the "Account creation page" first, We can close this bug without reaching out to the developer for a fix.

The typical user would not DL an app they do not have an account for, then attempt to import contacts into said app before having an account. Additionally, due to the low impact of this bug, we would be unlikely to get fb resources to give this issue any attention.
