Description Joe Breuer 2012-07-13 13:41:26 UTC
Using the "File a new bug" convenience link on the bugzilla search result page results in a different bug entry form than the "format=guided" version I'm presented with when using the "New" Link in the bugzilla header.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to the gentoo bugzilla page,

2. Enter search terms in the top search bar leading to no search result, e.g. "pink elephant" (for me that was "emacs parallel" before #426444 was filed.

3. You are presented with an empty search result list, which contains some convenience links: "File a new bug", "Edit this search", "Start a new search".

4. Click on the "File a new bug" link

5. Choose "Gentoo Linux" (anything really, the difference is only visible on the following page)
Actual Results:  
You are taken to

This differs from the bug entry form I was used to.

Expected Results:  
The - for me - apparently "normal" bug report form reached by clicking "New" in the top navigation bar is in a different format:

A significant negative impact of the problem is users unknowingly creating incomplete bug reports.

I suppose this is something we could change.  To be honest, it never occurred to me to be using that link, given that I explicitly prefer the expert interface.
