OK, In my real world. I need login first with my ID and password, and I click couple of OKs and Yes, then I have the page for downloading. I click on one of the downloads on the screen, specify my location for saving. then click OK to download.

So, my question is where can I put my ID and password, and how can I handle OKs and Yes ?
