Friends dialog: Incorrect behavior when deleting friendofs

In the friends dialog, I can select a friendof who is not a friend (yellow left arrow), click "Delete Friend", and iJournal tells me "Successfully Deleted". This is incorrect, since you cannot delete friendofs. The "Delete Friend" button should be grayed out if no user is selected or if the selected user is not a friend.

In the friends dialog, if I select a friend who is also a friendof and click "Delete Friend", iJournal will tell me "Successfully Deleted" and then remove that user from the list. This is incorrect - the user is still a friendof, and should remain on the list with a yellow left arrow.

New users often want to be able to delete friendofs for users they don't know or don't like, so giving them the impression that it's possible but isn't working for some reason has the potential to cause confusion.
