      Description

      Hi,

      I recently had a pipeline running, and had to terminate it from the web
      interface by clicking on the red "X" icon.

      The build did not terminate. At this point, I had to go to:

      https://jenkins.freebsd.org/job/FreeBSD_HEAD/75/console

      then I had to scroll all the way to the bottom, and click on:

      Click here to forcibly terminate running steps

      It took me a long time to figure out that this link even existed.
      Can this link be put in a better place?
      The current behavior is not intuitive at all from a UI perspective.

            Here is the idea, in certain conditions, this bug does block Jenkins completely, is persistent even system restarts and the affected job may not even have a console. It seems that is impossible to get rid of the blocked jobs and Jenkins doesn't do anything.

            +1 - and if the jobs are deleted the links to add /term and /kill to will not be available.
