I do not understand all parts of the problem. Only 2 Thoughts:

1. It is imperative that the "real" reporter of the bug with its 
Bugzilla account will be listed as Bug reporter in theFDO Bugzilla Bug

2. Unti now I did not see a problem. If you click the ► on the 
BugReoprt_Details page, a link with several information to an URL like 
will be proceeded and Bugzilla opens in the browser. If the potential 
reporter is already logged in to bugzilla, he can "Submit" (and will be 
asked for a valid Version), If not he will have to go the detour over 
the login page.

It should not be aproblem to transfer additional picker values (Version, 
...) like that.

I hoped this proceeding would also work for additional information 
filling the Description field? Or do I expect too much here, and filling 
"comment" and other needs more sophisticated proceeding?

A quick test to fill "comment" in the same way like short_desc

was successful.

Why do you see necessity for a different proceeding?
