Show "new changes since (datetime)" indicator that links to unread changes/comments
Currently show_bug.cgi uses the Bug User Last Visited API  to update the user’s last visited timestamp, but the API also allows to get the last visited timestamp. By now people are familiar with Slack showing the blue “New comments since (date)” indicator on each channel, and some other messaging apps do the same thing. It’s listed on roc’s wish list  and my Bugzilla 6 roadmap , and it should be easy to get implemented with no backend changes.  https://bmo.readthedocs.io/en/latest/api/core/v1/bug-user-last-visit.html  https://robert.ocallahan.org/2013/01/optimizing-bugzilla-usage.html  https://github.com/bugzilla/bugzilla-ux/wiki/Bugzilla-6-Roadmap
I've removed the auto-scroll, because the bug header is not fix-positioned yet and users won't be able to see the bug summary when scrolled down. Once the page layout is optimized like Slack , auto-scroll can be put in place for faster browsing.  https://get.slack.help/hc/en-us/articles/217626358-Tour-the-Slack-app
Summary: Show "New comments since (date)" indicator and scroll down the comment feed → Show "new changes since (datetime)" indicator that links to unread changes/comments
