I've had some success on a few sites with the following privoxy 
customization, in the /etc/privoxy/user.filter file
(the file you need to add this to may be different with different
versions/builds of privoxy):

FILTER: js-submits bypass particularly annoying JavaScript submits

s|</form|<input type="submit" name="submit" value="submit (privoxy)"> </form|ig
s|(<form[^>]*>)|$1 <input type="submit" name="submit" value="submit (privoxy)">

The second edit is needed because some pages don't bother with
formalities like properly "formed" HTML.
I activate this by adding js-submits to 'myfilters' in 'user.action'.

Two sites/pages this has frequently been usefull on are the inner
pages of reserving material on the Los Angeles Public Library,
and the Trip Planner for the (L.A. County) Metropolitan Transit Authority

It should be noted that w3m and members of the links family
may have a command, not necessarily mapped by default to any key,
to force submission of an HTML form whether it has a proper
HTML submit button or not.
