One idea is to have the 'Find' button at the end of the form and not
inside it. It can be achieved by modifying the order of the inputs and
keep it inline. It's ok for me too.

I agree that the inline style should be replaced by style in the CSS. I
will send a patch for the 2 package forms for that. (Not needed for the
first bug form if it's keep inline.)

I don't see obvious improvements:
 - The 'Categorize using' does not have a form so I guess it's a title.
If it's the case, it would be better to have an emphasis compared to the
sub-elements ('Order by' and 'Misc options'). I would choose to set h3
to the sub-items. Others solutions are indenting the sub-items or
removing the title for example.
 - Removing and having a lighter separator to remove the feeling each
input is separated from the other ones.
 - I don't see what to do with the big explanation for the first element
('Select bugs'). It's necessary to keep it but it's surprising to have
it empty for all the others items.
