When debugging intermittent bugs, I usually need to retrigger jobs for multiple times (usually 20). Currently I can only do this via try syntax and mozci command line, otherwise I would need to click retrigger lots of times and count the number myself.

Try syntax doesn't work well if a test is in different test job for different platform. mozci command line need lots of copy-paste of the builder name, and it is sometimes affected by the unstable network (looking at the great firewall in Mainland China).

It would be very handy if Treeherder could provide a UI to input the number of times to retrigger.
Well, self-serve does, though that doesn't help with taskcluster jobs. But for buildbot jobs, (downarrow menu), BuildAPI, and once your tests are at least pending, or running, or finished, there's a [rebuild] button and a textinput for the number of times.

Hmmm, I didn't know that. I think it makes sense to integrate that to treeherder as well so that people can find them more easily.
Selecting a job on Treeherder and repeatedly hitting the 'r' key will also retrigger the job as many times as you hit 'r'. That would save some time over repeatedly opening the retrigger/backfill menu and then clicking retrigger.
