Switch between the advanced bug entry form and the bugzilla helper form loses whatever changes you have made, without warning.

Steps:
1. https://bugzilla.allizom.org/enter_bug.cgi
2. choose a product and component
3. enter a short summary, click 'find similar issues', then 'my issue is not listed'
4. enter some random text in "what did you do", "what happened", "what should have happened"
5. click "switch to the advanced bug entry form"

Note: text is lost, no warning displayed.

6. enter some random text in "description"
7. click "Switch to the Bugzilla Helper"

Note: text is lost, no warning displayed.
FWIW, this also happens with the 4.0 version of GuideBugEntry so is not a regression in any way. I admit it should be handled differently in that the text in either place should be automatically converted when switching back and forth. But it would not be trivial to do and going from advanced to guided would be tricky.

adding a warning seems to be a reasonable approach.
