We aren't too strict about data validation in the issue reporter, that's why we didn't bother validating the email addresses. However, now that the email address is mandatory, it makes sense to have minimal validation here - simply adding type="email" will do. We merely need to ensure that the user cannot continue if the email address is invalid.

Mass-closing all bugs in Adblock Plus for Firefox module, the codebase of Adblock Plus 3.0 belongs into Platform and User-Interface modules. Old bugs are unlikely to still apply.
