 In the Quick Edit and Bulk Edit forms, the Submit and Cancel buttons are
 placed at the opposite sides of the form.

 As mentioned in the tracking ticket #40822, proximity of related
 information is an universal design principle which benefits everyone and
 it's particularly important for users with a reduced visual field, low
 vision, or other vision or cognitive impairments.

 User interface controls that are logically grouped should be placed close
 each other. For more details and related WCAG recommendations, please see
 the tracking ticket #40822.

 The primary action button should be on the left. See the detailed design
 feedback in https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/40822#comment:9

 In #45972 / [44757] the Comment form was changed to align the button on
 the left. See screenshots:

 The same change should be implemented for the Quick Edit and Bulk Edit
