Bug Description

When changing the milestone for a bug task the milestone list seems to be in a random order. This makes it very hard to pick the correct value from the list.

For example for LightDM in bug 1511545 when I click the edit icon beside a task I get:

Target to Milestone
Light Display Manager 1.17.1
Light Display Manager 1.14.3
Light Display Manager 1.10.6
Light Display Manager 1.2.11
Light Display Manager 1.16.5
Light Display Manager 1.12.4
Light Display Manager 1.18.0

I'd expect it to look more like:

Target to Milestone
Light Display Manager 1.18.0
Light Display Manager 1.17.1
Light Display Manager 1.16.5
Light Display Manager 1.14.3
Light Display Manager 1.12.4
Light Display Manager 1.10.6
Light Display Manager 1.2.11

This is a specific fix that would make the milestone list more usable but a more complex redesign would help more (bug 1512217).

We have a standard milestone sort ordering which sorts milestones by expected date first (putting milestones that don't have an expected date earlier than those that do) followed by milestone name normalised such that versions compare sensibly. We should use that for bug task milestone presentation too.
