From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:0.9.3+) Gecko/20010809
BuildID:    2001080904

Using Opera 5.11, I tried to submit a bug with the following summary:

"read all about it" is misaligned

I got an error message saying "Your bug information is incomplete.  Please
address the following issues: Summary: Please provide a more descriptive Summary."

I thought it might be thinking that the summary was too short, so I changed it to

"read all about it" is misaligned at royal chemistry society website

I still got the same error :(  Then I tried submitting the bug using Mozilla,
with all of the same information, and it worked fine.

Reproducible: Didn't try
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to report a bug using Opera

Actual Results:  Showed an error dialog, but luckily didn't clear the form

Expected Results:  Should have opened the advanced bug entry form, like it does
when I use Mozilla

I understand that you might have a rivalry with Opera, but that's not a good
first impression to make on someone looking for an alternative alternative browser.

Note: this doesn't seem to fit under "Browser or Editor", but I couldn't figure
out how to file a bug about Bugzilla.

Yeah, this is a bugzilla issue if it's a real bog. Changing to webtools.

We have no "incomplete information" error in Bugzilla.  Based on other comments
above, this sounds like Bugzilla Helper, which is a mozilla.org thing and not
part of Bugzilla.

OK, the problem we have here is that:
is coming out as "1" for any text string in the Summary field. It seems like the
split() isn't actually doing any splitting.

This is in Opera 5 for Linux, and presumably Win98 as well.

Anyone have any idea why this might be?

I filed a ticket in Opera's problem reporting system to ask them about this. But
if anyone CCed on this bug could confirm or deny that this is valid JS that
Opera should be able to cope with, I'd be very happy.

And they replied:

"Hello Gerv,
seems regular expressions are still being implemented. It did work for me if I
tried splitting on a space ' ' rather than the regex. Sorry about the
inconvenience, if you want you can submit a bug report from
http://bugs.opera.com/bugreport.cgi ... you should be familiar with the
procedure ;-)" 

I've replaced the regexp with a split-on-space - it's not as good but it will
do. But I'm not impressed - Opera is supposed to be an alternative to the Big
Two, and regexps have been in JS for quite a while. And it's not as if this is a
complex one.
