There is a HTTPS site which I need to visit really often. Unfortunately, the login window seems to be some sort of CSS popup which only opens after pressing a certain menu button on that site. That is probably why Chrome doesn't offer to save the username and password for this site. Hence, I'm always forced to re-enter the username and password which is really annoying because I need to visit this site very often.
So I'm looking for alternative solutions to this problem. Back in the old days, one could just look for the CGI or PHP script that managed login and then call the login script directly by pasting the appropriate URL in the browser like so
That's why I'd like to ask this question before wasting lots of time for nothing. So can anybody tell me whether it is possible at all to find out what happens when the user presses the "Login" button and then emulate this by directly calling the respective script by pasting a URL into the browser? Or is such a thing no longer possible because of SSL?
In that case, is there any other way of automating the login process for this particular site or am I really forced to re-enter username and password every single time, which is really annoying?
