Description Ed 2011-11-26 11:13:26 UTC
On the bug system login page at https://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/bug/ there are 5 issues:
(a) the keyboard focus is not applied to the first field ('User:') when the page is loaded;
(b) there is a large amount of blank space between the form and the footer area;
(c) the link for 'create an account' takes you to https://www.libreoffice.org/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi, when it should take you to https://www.libreoffice.org/bugzilla/createaccount.cgi;
(d) having entered some login details into the form, the return key does not work;
(e) the 'Sign in' button cannot be tabbed to - the tab order goes from the 'Password:' field to the 'create an account' link, bypassing that button.  

With respect, all these things should have been picked up in testing - they cannot be by design (can they?).

(a) I can reproduce that. If you are not logged in from a former session, the login form appears with "User:" and "Password". Caret should be already in "User:" so that you can start to type immediately, but it is not.

(b) reproducible, I do not know whether there are good reasons to have that space.

(c) has already been discussed in "Bug 42156 - BUGZILLAASSISTANT: Broken Links on the bug report page", but the result still is not optimum?

(d) reproducible, I believe Return key should do the same as the 'Sign in' button.

(e) reproducible

Please think about that immediately when you type "and" in the Summary! And it seems "Sub Component" picker does not work correct for you, too? ;-)

@Loic, Korrawit:
Can you please check what can be solved with few expenses? 
Remaining should be splitted to separate bug reports

where to start debugging.

Please do not use https://www.libreoffice.org/bugzilla/*, use https://bugs.freedesktop.org/* URLs instead..

issues a, c and d are solved.

issue b is due to the iframe we are using so I can't solve that easily, and I don't think that is really a problem.

issue e is also something I can't solve easily. created a new bugpost for that: https://bugassistant.libreoffice.org/show_bug.cgi?id=62387
