Enable Bugzilla Charts on Mediazilla

If the reports are still not being displayed, go to the
template/en/custom/reports directory and compare the menu.html.tmpl to the
corresponding file in the template/en/default/reports directory.

Bugzilla now has a templating system and hopefully, the custom skin for
Mediazilla was done by changing the templates in the custom directory.

Hope this does the trick. :)
