How to create a desktop shortcut that includes UserID and Password
I would like to know how to add my User ID and Password to allow seamless login to a site by using the userid and password
I have an existing shortcut and would like FF to open and login to the site with one "double-click"
I do appreciate that it is a security risk to do this, but the information on this site poses no risk for me if someone that has authorized access to my personal computer, click on this shortcut.
I will appreciate any help to assist me in doing this.

First save the username and password in Firefox, if you wan't make use of master key password to protect your login.
Create a desktop shortcut to a website
Thanks for the advice, but the website does not give the option to save the password, hence my question
Any other way I can perhaps in the properties specify that?
Some websites use autocomplete=off to prevent Firefox from saving and filling the name and password.
You can remove autocomplete=off with a bookmarklet to make Firefox save the name and password.
