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 
our plan:

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 
this screenshot 
<https://bug1344091.bmoattachments.org/attachment.cgi?id=9079798>for how 
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
