User pref for "Possible Duplicates"

It'd be nice if I could pref off "Possible Duplicates" for when I file bugs.

Whenever I'm filing a JS bug, I get this giant slorf of basically random stuff. The UI is disorienting, distracting, taking up what looks like about 30-40% of my screen. It's never found a valid dupe for me, and overhead of having and dealing with dupes in the system is super low anyway.

Sounds like a reasonable request. If you want to fix this on your end in the mean time, I believe it's all contained in a div that a quick userContent.css change would hide from you.

This line is too long, and there is a missing whitespace before %].

Nit: remove trailing whitespace on commit

I'm not sure about approving this one. If it was up to me, I would a-.

IMO, this is one of those 'features' that are better as an extension rather than part of the core code.

For what it's worth, I would still really appreciate seeing this option, especially on bmo.

The code is part of the core code. That's not what this bug is about. If you want to file a separate bug to move the Possible Duplicates code into an extension, feel free to do so. But even in that case, users may still want to not see it when the extension is enabled, so the current patch still makes sense.
