When viewing any list of items, a user should be able to expand or collapse all the list items shown in the current paginated view.

Got this request specifically from a chat with some Mozilla QA members.

if the list is very long, this might have to do a LOT of fetching.  Is there a good way to either limit the list size this supports, or warn the user it'll take a long time before they do it?

Well, it would only apply to the current page, so the amount of fetching should be limited to the page size, it can't grow indefinitely. Still, with a page length of even 20 items, that's a lot of Ajax requests and it will be slow. 

I don't really like this feature much at all, to be honest - to me if its needed it implies that we put something into the detail expansion that belongs in the summary. I'd be hesitant to implement this until we've drilled down and really established the specific use cases better, and determined whether those use cases could be addressed by moving something from details into summary.

If we do absolutely need this, I think we have to move away from using ajax for details and just preload everything. It's just too much load on the server to allow expand-all of detail expansions are ajax-fetched.
Mass-closing remaining MozTrap bugs as WONTFIX, due to 1) the Mozilla-hosted instance being decommissioned (see https://wiki.mozilla.org/TestEngineering/Testrail), and, for now, 2) the still-up code archived at its GitHub page: https://github.com/mozilla/moztrap (we'll decide what's next for that, in the near future).

Thanks!
