Description Markus Walter 2011-07-12 11:35:41 UTC
I created bugs 374925 and 374929. In the process I created lots of duplicate bugs, because I added an attachment, but no method to detect the content type was selected. Bugzilla generated a big red error, but created the bug anyway without the attachment. This I didn't noticed and created bugs until I successfully added the attachment.

Now a description:

I'm using Firefox 3.6.18 on Ubuntu 10.04 to browse the web. I had NoScript enabled. I then started reporting the bugs using the expert interface. I already had filled out most of the forms, when I thought of enabling javascript to get the nice embedded search for possible duplicate bugs (I had made a quick survey before starting to report, but this didn't include the resolved bugs as it was a standard search). This reloaded the bug reports and I had to enter them again, then adding an attachment (the build log) as part of the bug creation. As soon as I clicked 'submit bug' a page with a big warning on red ground appeared to notify me that no method to determine the content type of the attachment was selected. Below was a hint to use the 'back' button and try again which I did. And indeed no radio-button was selected and everything went fine, after I selected one and resubmitted the bug.

I did never notice that a lot of bugs where created while the errors where displayed and during the process I was quite sure that the bug creation process was canceled due to the error, due to the hint with trying it again.

FWICS currently Bugzilla just displays the newly-created bug with attachment creation failure message above, so it should be pretty self-evident that the bug is created.
