It is possible to configure PWS to either minimze after autotype, or not. Alas, the "or not" option is implemented incorrectly as "pop the PWS window to the front" instead of "leave the PWS window alone where it is", so perhaps this should be a third option?

The reason for "leave the "leave the PWS window alone where it is" option is that often it is convenient to autotype just short of the "return" to avoid logging in automatically and instead manually decide to click or not the "remain logged-in" checkbox or any other checkboxes that may have been implemented in the page and where it is not convenient to autotype. In this case the user would want to continue seeing the target web page up-front and this is where the PWS window popping infront interferes, as the user must minimize it or pop it back, thus defeating the purpose of the "do not minimize PWS after autotype" option.
