<p><b>NOTE:</b> It is required that you have entered your Bugzilla login name and password
into the Bugzilla plugin preferences if you wish to create new bugs.
<p>The bug editor is opened when you view a bug. Here, you can edit the bug and submit the changes.
Once you are finished modifying the bug, you can click the "Submit" button at the
bottom of the editor to submit it to the Bugzilla server. Also, if you have made
changes to the bug, you can click the "Compare" button to inspect any changes between
your version of the bug and the online version.
<p>You can save the current version of the bug offline on your
hard-drive using Ctrl+s or File -> Save. The locally saved bug report will be accessible from the Offline Reports View. Any
time you try to view a bug with this id, your offline copy will be shown instead of the one
from the server. You can continue to make and save changes until you either delete the offline
version or submit your changes to the server.
<p>At the top of the editor, there is a hyperlink that says "Open in
browser". This will open the current bug in the default web browser
specified in eclipse. This is useful for if the bug editor does not
currently support an option that you wish to use such as voting. If
you wish to have the bug editor close and the web browser open, you can
Alt+click on the link.</p>
<p>A bug saved from the New Bug Wizard will open in a simpler editor, since it does
not yet exist on a server, and so there are fewer tasks you can perform on it.
The most notable change is that there is no button to allow you to compare it with
the online version.
and the only action is to submit the report to the server.
