When filling a bug in the bugzilla helper, if the fields: "Reproducibility" and
"Steps to Reproduce" (and others) are required.

If the bug's "severity" is marked "Enhancement" (by the user) the form should
not ask to fill those 2 fields, as a request for a feature that does not exist
is not "reproduceable".

Ooh, picky :-) Come on, people can use their common sense and leave those fields
blank. Or does the JavaScript not let you do that?

Whichever, Bugzilla Helper is going away, to be replaced by
http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/enter_bug.cgi?format=guided (assuming Myk's put it
up, which he may not have yet.)

It outputs a javascript box stating that the fields don't have anything.
Hmm. OK, that's not ideal. The new version doesn't have this, though, so that's OK.

Bugzilla Helper is no more! The new and improved simple bug entry form is:
http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/enter_bug.cgi?format=guided

And it doesn't prevent you from leaving that field blank.

clearing milestone on all DUPLICATE/WONTFIX/WORKSFORME/INVALID so they'll show
