Built-in feedback function button confusion

Summary by Elitre (WMF)

I tried to leave a message here automatically from within the VE, using "Submit feedback". I entered text, then clicked on "File a technical task" which redirects to Phabricator (and loses the already entered feedback). It seems like a useful function to have but the placement/label of the button is confusing, I mistook it for the submit button of my feedback ("File technical task *instead*")

It might be better to have it as a link inline with the text, maybe also to explicitly mention Phabricator. Alternatively, have it as another option in the Help menu: "Leave feedback / File technical task".

@Jberkel, as much as I agree with you, the related task is low priority. :/

@Elitre (WMF) thanks, good to know you're aware of the problem. even some small changes to the copy would make a big difference. you could even argue that it should just be removed (if you click on "feedback" you want to leave feedback, not file a bug).
