    HeritageQuest is a library research tool that uses some sort of simple login form. The user must type in their library card number each time they want to access the system.

    Here is the URL:

    http://rpa.ccpa.net/rpa/webauth.exe?rs=hqadm&lb=ADM

    It uses this code to pass the card number for validation:

    Code:
    	<form ACTION="../rpa/webauth.exe" NAME="search" METHOD="POST" ONSUBMIT="getclienttime()">
     
    	<input type="hidden" name="rs" value="hqadm">
     
    	<input type="hidden" name="lb" value="ADM">
    Is there a way to create a custom shortcut for my browser that would allow me to simply "click" and log myself in?

    Thanks.

    Lastpass not an option. Thanks, though.

    I don't know any way to simulate a post with a shortcut. There are are sort of ways you could do it in script or code, but not by simply clicking an internet shortcut, as far as I know.

    You can embed javascript in bookmarks in Firefox(maybe others too).

    That's true. Never tried it but that might be a solution.
