Subject: lynx-cur: Handle single password elements in forms more like single text elements
Date: Mon, 15 Nov 2010 19:12:27 -0800
Package: lynx-cur
Version: 2.8.8dev.1-1
Severity: wishlist

If a form contains a single text field, lynx will
submit it when return is entered.
Similar behaviour for password fields would be cool,
facilitating customized, accelerated login pages.
Thanks for any consideration.
