A lot of Web pages serve one purpose: they are place where user fills his Login & Password, clicks "Login" button and enters into some protected area.
It would be handy if Bookmarks Manager could click "Login" button by itself.
- If there is exactly one stored password for URL, display new option "Login immediately" for this page in Bookmarks Manager,
- When user clicks bookmark, after page is loaded & password is filled, if this option is turned on, Bookmarks Manager must set focus to Password field and fire KeyPress event with ENTER keyCode.

Reproducible: Always




1. See Bug 592640, both suggestions are about working with stored passwords in Bookmarks Manager,
2. There may be some not user-friendly login pages which ignore Enter click in Password field... Automating them is more complex but still possible.
I suggest to put handling them aside, consider this rare case later.
