Description

The original user interface has a link on bug fields which you can click to see what the field and its values mean. In the experimental user interface, I can no longer find any easy way to go there.

imho tooltips aren't useful enough to provide detailed information, so we should link to a wiki page containing all the field information.  adding a "What do these fields mean?" link below the "attach file" button makes sense (ie. in the same row as the "view" button).

the current ui points to https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/page.cgi?id=fields.html but that page is very hard to read and is useless for all of our custom fields.  we should migrate that page to the wiki and edit it to provide a generic description that covers all the tracking and status fields.

- Created main help button from modal UI to the BMO/UserGuide page on wiki.
- Create sub help page for bug field information (still need one for custom fields) and removed page.cgi page
- Moved get permissions help page to wiki and removed page.cgi page
- Continuing work on revamping wiki help pages to consolidate all of the random help pages into one tree structure.

r- 

rank and important are missing help info

same for Reporter, Assignee, Triage Owner.

Also I expected the "Help" button to work like a "what is this" button but that's probably just my exposure to Windows 95's ? button.

Meanwhile, is this actually good UX? It strikes me as jarring behavior when you click on some text that isn't obviously a link and a new tab opens. :-/
