I don't know about browser extensions, having never used any.
But on Linux at least, I have a small script that takes
advantage of the two different clipboards -- middle-click pastes
in the username, and Ctrl-V pastes in the password.

(The script takes one argument, which is the current URL.  It
can parse the URL to find the key, which arguably helps in the
unlikely event of someone trying to phish me I suppose).
