Summary0027938: Suggestion: General: System for reporting bugs from inside the IDE
DescriptionReporting a bug from inside the IDE should not just open the web portal. It should open a built-in form to fill out the necessary info, automatically providing data such as IDE and runtime version and any log files - could also include checkboxes to include a dxdiag, a YYZ of the project and the user's preferences (if so, reminding them that passwords are encrypted here).

Instead of the Fatal Error pop-up, we should merge it with the bug form so that when a fatal error occurs they simply have to press "Submit bug".

The user is doing us a favour when they submit a bug, so the least we can do is help them help us here.

Russell says: the minimum should be that you don't have to login again when Help -> Report a bug is done from inside the IDE

I think we could do all this in an encoded URI to the website... it would be long but it could be done...
