too many links

Bug 22045 added nice little links at the top of the addbiblio page to jump right to a specific MARC field. It gives a separate link for each instance of a repeated field. Some libraries have bib records for circulating eReaders that come loaded with hundreds of books. This bib records reflect the full contents of the eReader and therefore have *a lot* of repeated fields. Looking at a bib with 300 700$a fields and 573 740$a fields, this block of links makes the record very hard to edit. The list of fields take up nearly the whole browser window and can't be scrolled past. I'll put a screenshot in an attachment.

I could see fixing this by:
- making those links collapsable
- making those links automatically disappear/collapse when one scrolls down the page
- only giving a link to the first instance of each repeated MARC field
