http://mxr-test.landfill.bugzilla.org/bugzilla/search?string=attachment&find=tmpl&filter=Create+a%7CAdd+an

/template/en/default/attachment/list.html.tmpl,
    * line 134 -- <a href="attachment.cgi?bugid=[% bugid %]&amp;action=enter">Create a New Attachment</a> (proposed patch, testcase, etc.)

/template/en/default/bug/create/create-guided.html.tmpl,

    * line 462 -- <legend>Add an attachment</legend>

/template/en/default/global/messages.html.tmpl,
    * line 121 -- Please add your attachment by clicking the "Create a New Attachment" link

Everything here is fairly consistent about "Create a New Attachment".

Pick a bug, any bug, bug 300079 is a bug.
it says:

Add an attachment (proposed patch, testcase, etc.)  Hide Obsolete (8) | View All 

Now try using guided:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=mozilla.org&format=guided

... Any information longer than a few lines, such as a stack trace or HTML testcase, should be added using the "Create a new Attachment" link on the bug, after it is filed....

This is a bmo customization goof.
Not a reed goof. This bug is in Bugzilla itself.

Ok, just a question: why can't we add attachments directly on the guided help page?

I've seen dozens of people who paste in stuff like testcases and stackdumps and possibly faulty sourcecode into the "Additional Information" box.  I know it SAYS to attach it later, but if we could just allow attaching on that page, it'd be immediately obvious where they should put the overflowing contents of the clipboard.

offhand, guided was created long before you *could* create attachments while filing bugs, and as you can see it's the unloved child.
