#5279: “Server” field is meaningless for S3; should be hidden

     Type:  defect                     |         Status:  new  
 Priority:  normal                     |      Milestone:       
Component:  core                       |        Version:  4.0b2
 Severity:  normal                     |       Keywords:       
 Platform:  Windows 7                  |   Architecture:  Intel
 Steps to reproduce:

 1. Go to the bookmarks tab.
 2. Click the “+” sign to add a bookmark.
 3. Choose “S3 (Amazon Simple Storage Service)” from the drop-down list.


 One of the fields shown is “Server:” and it is empty, as though the user
 needs to type something in there.


 This is confusing as many users won’t know what to enter there. In fact,
 the field can be left blank. Ideally it should be disabled, removed from
 the form, or at least pre-filled when the user is setting up an Amazon S3
