After writing a long site report I tried to submit and was presented with the following error:

Error message - "There was an error creating the report, and so no information
was sent to mozilla.org"
Error Details - "Invalid Localization"

This is not however the bug I report here.  The problem is that after the submission fails there is no way to go back and retry or to copy/cut the text from the fields (if I could have then I'd have resubmitted the text using a different build of the browser without the localization issue.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
[Happens every time there is an error]

1. Fill out a site report in the reporter tool.
2. Submit
3. On failure, try to get back to previous page of wizard.

Actual Results:  
Back button is disabled.

Expected Results:  
Should have been able to go back to previous page of wizard to retry or copy the content of the form.

Bug filed about the localization issue in the Gentoo bugzilla:

This should make 1.8.1.  UI Fix, no real risk.

r=me, assuming you've tested that nothing bad happens when going back.
