Fill form fields out and open in browser

walkingthecow has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I know how to fill out a form and submit it using WWW::Mechanize, but, due to a Captcha that I must fill out, I am trying to fill the form fields out and then open in Firefox so that I can enter the Captcha field myself, but I have no idea how to do this. Just wondering if there is a Perl module I can use for this?

    You might download the picture and display it outside the browser, let the user type the letters and fill it just like the other fields. If javascript is involved, you can try WWW::Mechanize::Firefox.
