Then you check your mail, impatiently. After a while, up to hours ( graylisting and other things can interfere here) you get a link to click.
Once you click the link, you get a password assigned to you, (mailed to your inbox, I think?). then you have to reset the password, because bugzilla doesn't like cleartext passwords much.
And then, finally! you can fill in the username&password into abrt.
And realise that you closed the windows cause they were in your way, and have to redo it all from start.
