As you know, bugzilla.mozilla.org <https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/>has
evolved to meet the needs of various projects, and the current bug
detail page seems cluttered with so many fields. Making changes to a
familiar UI may confuse some of you, but we feel like it’s time to get
it improved for a more streamlined workflow. Here’s a brief summary of
Phase 1: Reorganized bug fields— The bug fields will soon be reorganized
<https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1344091>to place similar
fields in related groups. For example, the Dependencies, Regressions,
URL and See Also fields will move to the new References section. See
the new bug detail page will look like.
Phase 2: Redesigned bug page— We’ll be introducing a 2-column layout
<https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1330451>to make it easier
to have a look at both bug fields and comments at the same time. The new
design will also be optimized for mobile, so you can join a conversation
comfortably on your phone!
Phase 3: Further UX enhancements— There are still many more things to
do: simplifying the timeline, making it easier to edit bug ID and other
complicated fields, and ultimately implementing real-time updates.
Bugzilla will be pretty modernized at this point.
So don’t be surprised to one day see something different on your bug!
Aside from regular BMO change logs being posted on the tools-bmo list
<https://lists.mozilla.org/listinfo/tools-bmo>, we’ll keep you posted on
this dev-platform list with any major change that may affect you. Wanna
