I still can’t figure out why I haven’t found more information on this problem. It would seem that David and I are the only two people in the world who use Twitter and Firefox with Firebug enabled (and I’m only assuming that David does have Firebug enabled. He might have a completely different problem). Maybe others use Firebug and Twitter with no problems, and there’s something else on my system that was a factor.
That being said, I found a way to unfollow using the terminal command line in Linux. The solution is here: http://apiwiki.twitter.com/Twitter-REST-API-Method:-friendships%C2%A0destroy and several other places. For a test, I unfollowed the NYTImes with this line: curl -u bnmng:mypassword -d “screen_name=nytimes” http://twitter.com/friendships/destroy.xml
