Workbench Bug Reporter fails to log in to report bug using valid credentials

How to repeat:
Experience a bug in workbench, choose to report bug, provide valid login credentials either for MySql.com or Oracle and enjoy experiencing login failure.

Suggested fix:
Pick one login authentication system for tools and stick with it.

this might explain the decrease in recently reported workbench bugs...

Fixed as of MySQL Workbench 6.0.8, and here's the changelog entry:

The "Workbench Bug Reporter" failed to log in to report a bug, even when
using valid credentials. It was removed from MySQL Workbench.

Thank you for the bug report.
