The most common explanation for this is that your friend was wearing some mesh clothing, and removed it without removing the alpha mask that is a part of that outfit.  (And everyone, including your friend, should see the same thing...an avatar with some invisible parts.)

Solution:  Look in the Worn tab, or the Current Outfit folder in inventory, find the alpha mask clothing item (it will have the symbol of a shirt with a grid pattern on it).  Right click it and choose Take Off.

If your friend is wearing a mesh body, it may have come with a HUD, an on-screen set of controls for it.  If this is the case, there should be a part of the HUD that controls which parts of the avatar appear transparent.  Adjust those.

You are asking a tech question and not giving us much to go on.

Firestorm Viewer and some others but not the Linden viewer have a DERENDER option in the right-click menu. It typically derenders the entire attachment. But, a relog will bring it back.

In your case your viewer likely got out of sync with the servers. The viewer  and servers maintain an Interest List, a list of things you can see. The viewer and servers work on getting those things updated and sending you their status. They put off downloads and updates for the things behind you, out of sight. If a friend changes their appearance behind your back, literally,  when you turn around the viewer may use the previous information it has about their mesh body. That they stay transparent is the viewer thinking it knows what it is doing unaware of a change and the server thinking the viewers got it.

The trick is getting the viewer to admit it needs an update. With the Linden viewer that is often a relog. Sometimes a TP out to another region and back will do the trick. If you can get them to change their active group, that can trigger an update. If they will toggle their alpha cuts, that can do the trick. Or it may just be a matter of time, like 10+ minutes, turning around 3 times and clicking your heels (spinning in place triggers a lot of Interest List updates), changing your draw distance to something ridiculously small (the Linden viewer's min is 64m so you have to be farther away than that), give it a minute or two then back to normal. 

You'll learn which of these works best with your viewer.

There is the problem of a viewer's connection to the SL servers dropping Network Packets (Packet Loss). This can cause all sorts of odd problems. Open the viewer's Stats Panel, Ctrl-Shift-1, and look to see if you are losing packets. If so, it is a connection issue.
