There are several ways to add a comment:

  • Select the bug in the Bug Table and click the Comment button on the Bug Toolbar. Provide your comment in a dialog. Click Upload to upload it to Bugzilla immediately or Save Draft to save it locally.
  • Select the bug in the Bug Table and open the Edit Bug dialog. Provide your comment in the Additional Comment field. Click Upload to upload it to Bugzilla immediately or Save Draft to save it locally.
  • Right-click one of the comments in the Bug Details area and select Comment. Provide your comment in a dialog. Click Upload to upload it to Bugzilla immediately or Save Draft to save it locally.

The comments are displayed in the Bug Details area. The Comments Toolbar provides additional functionality for working with comments.



The comments which are saved locally have the <new comment> tag instead of the comment author label and can be modified or removed. To do that, right-click the comment and select Edit Comment or Delete Comment.



Once a comment is uploaded to Bugzilla the <new comment> tag is changed to the comment author label and the comment cannot be modified anymore. Instead, the Reply to Comment option becomes available. Right-click the comment to select this option.

The Comments Toolbar provides the following functions:

  • Arrange comments by creation date. Use the Oldest First and Newest First buttons.
  • View comments in a thread. Click the Threaded Comments View button to see the thread structure.
  • Expand all comments. For the first ten comments the full text is shown. For other comments you can see only a fixed number of symbols and you need to click the comment to see full text. To expand all comments at once, use the Expand All Comments button .
