You can still send the necessary parameters to log in, you just need to
find out what they are. The Firebug extension for Firefox is very
helpful for this. Enable the Net monitoring before you submit the login
form, and then inspect the request to the server. You should be able to
figure out what parameters are being added via javascript.
