The footer email form in the mozilla.org template is 'closed' by default, hiding some of the form elements. Clicking in the email input or the submit button opens the rest of the form. Clicking the submit button *also* submits the form, showing you errors. It probably shouldn't do that if the form wasn't open yet.
Steven, I believe this was fixed at some point or else I cannot reproduce. Can you verify or reopen if needed?

This original issue is still there, but on second thought, it might not be so bad. Otherwise, clicking the submit button would open the form, but not provide any other feedback, which might be just as odd as showing the required field notices. Let's leave it as is.
Sidenote: the email input-field should really have a required attribute and aria-required="true"
