THere is no easy way to login to bugzilla without entering/changing a bug. This makes it so that you can't get your saved querys immediatly.
What's so hard about the "Log in" link that appears at the bottom of every page (except the toplevel index.html page)? Note that if you're already logged in, this link appears as "Log out".
Well, you could always put the "log in" link on the front page, just above "log out", right?
Is it really that hard to just put the dumb link there? It's not like you'r going to the moon. No perl needed terry.

What about instead of using just a "log in" link, having: * Query Page (Search existing bug reports) * Query Page (and login if needed) ...on the front page?

This bug has not been touched for more than nine months. In most cases, that means it has "slipped through the net". Please could the owner take a moment to add a comment to the bug with current status, and/or close it. Thank you :-) Gerv
My suggestion is to just have a log in page. If you're already logged in, it should trash your old login and relogin (and say so on the log in page). It should just take you to a page that says you're now logged in, including links to the front and query pages.

This might depend on if they have their footer on. If they do, there probably is no need to tell them they are logged in on a message page. Also we should take them back to the page they came from.
Easiest way to fix this would be with a CGI page for the index page so you can customize what they see based on if they're logged in or not. There's another bug for that around here somewhere...
