Summary0028618: Category empty but required does not prevent form submission on Firefox Windows and Safari

On the "Enter Issue Details" form, the "Category" select input is a required field. As such it has a required HTML5 attribute which prevents form submission when no option was selected.

However, when using Firefox on Windows and Safari browsers, the form can be submitted with no category selected resulting in an error telling the user he can go back using the browser "Back" button. But in this case, the form content is lost...

The bug is due to the "empty" / "select" option having a value="0". The value should be value="" instead.

The fix is the following:
line 769 in file core/print_api.php:
// GZ FJ fix required Category select in Firefox Windows.
// echo '<option value="0" disabled hidden';
echo '<option value=""';

Steps To Reproduce

Use Firefox on Windows and Safari browsers and do not select a "Category".
