User Story

As a developer, I want to know which sites the password manager is providing a poor user experience so I can fix it.
Signals could include:

* user has a simple affordance to "report problem with password manager at site"
* user copies login credentials into a page that we already have saved
* user invokes a "fallback affordance" on page (bug 1122759)
:bsmedberg, what are the precedents for this, and what is the right tool? It's obviously a privacy concern, and IMO, this information (a domain) shouldn't be associated with broader user metrics. I hear content services is doing something similar, but running their own endpoint. Cloud Services can run an endpoint to collect this error reporting, too, if necessary.

Can we make this an opt-in UI? That would alleviate all of the concerns.

If that's not practical, let's talk; we can do this, carefully, and there are some new privacy tools for this that we'd like to try.
