on 99% of bugzilla pages you can click a login link at the top of the page. You can't do it on the page for where you failed to log in:

The page says "Please press Back and try again.".

It does, but it should offer the normal login behaviors.

I prefer to update the text "Please press Back and try again." to "Please click here to <a>re-login</a>." 

Let me know your thoughts on this.

No. This is a generic error message. It's fine to ask the user to click the Back button.
