The decision to only allow edits by members of editbugs was made in Bug 1484477. I see no pressing reason to change that in 2020.
Can we discuss this a lil' bit more? In this bug's description I've stated my reasoning. Could you refer to it and explain why you still don't see the reason to change that (especially in 2020 where every other bug trackers allow that)? I went thru Bug 1484477 and I see the discussion in this bug took place when Bugzilla just started to have edit option - the discussion is mainly around editbugs group. Now, let's give generic user an option to edit their bugs, ideally for limited time (1 hr or so) if possible.

If reporter reports something wrong, the wrong part hangs around forever without any way of fixing it. Even with editbugs rights, I cannot fix someone else's bug description.
That's bug 1535000 which is close to landing (blocked by bug 1665646 which is in progress).
Now busy ppl gathered around Mozilla who read and understand bugs reported by generic users, must try to edit their description instead to let generic users update their descriptions if they spot an error? And I'm not saying about typos, I'm saying fixing crucial errors like forgotten 'not' or fixing double meaning sentences (not every one is english native).
