User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020529
Build Identifier: unimportant

On the Bugzilla webpage there is written:

"This form prompts you for the information required to file a good bug report
(or enhancement request.) It may seem lengthy, but Mozilla developers need all
this information to understand and reproduce the bug, which is the first step
towards fixing it. Please note that we do not accept bug reports by email -
please do not email developers or mozilla.org staff with bug reports. Also,
please do not file bugs on copies of Mozilla older than two weeks."

I propose to add at the end of this paragraph a direct link to the download
page of the newest version(s) fullfilling this requested property.
Normal users normally don't know:
 - what the newest version is
 - where to download
and not crazy people also avoid search half an hour or an hour to may be find
something to download which may be that what you mentioned here.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

This would need to be checked into the copy in Bugzilla CVS and picked up when
b.m.o. does its update in mid-January.
