Looking for Form-Filling program

Recommended Posts

Hi. Currently I'm annoyed by a bug in Firefox/Minefield and look for a workaround (I know I could use a FF version without the bug, but that's not the question ^^) and also a generic tool to do as follows:

 

If a window (e.g. popup dialogue) appears on X that has a specified title, focus it and type in some keys, e.g. "PeterPanic" [tab] "password" [tab][cr] ... This would help replying to annoying popups as well as fill in some data or passwords.

 

If I saw correctly, kwallet only supports programs that use it actively.

 

Thanks,

PeterPanic

Do you really want your information to be auto-filled into an "annoying popup"? Chances are they're trying to harvest your information to sell it to third parties (I know people who work for companies that do this - I was offered a job at one).

Usually, of course, I don't want that. But I use some web community sites, e.g., that, whenever I close one of their windows (which I REALLY want to close) pops up a JavaScript alert "Do you really want to close this? You won't be informed about new messages any more!" [Yes] [No] ... Grrrrrrr! I hate having to press Yes... Turning off JavaScript would be an option, if I'd like to use firefox like in stone age... I also could use the Greasymonkey extension to remove this part of the script. But to write a script against every annoying script seems to be more work than benefit.

 

I'm looking for a simple solution for various dialog boxes. Some kind of Window-Opening-triggered keyboard macro player.

 

Using it to reveal secret personal data to such companies is a totally different question. I wouldn't.
