Q.  How can I make a useful bug report?

A.  Please provide the info up front.  Programmers don't mind
being told "something obvious" about your environment - eg I am using Windows.
Every problem report should include:

Title - I suggest something neutral here, rather than saying "bug" or "failure" use "issue", etc. Environment - Don't make the programmer ask or assume Steps to reproduce Expected Result - even if its obvious (eg should not crash) Actual Result Visual Proof (screenshots, videos, text) - include URL if relevant
If the program in question runs things (eg a web browser) its best to provide a *minimal* example of the html that causes the issue - not your whole website.
