If you use KDE, you can right click the Title Bar and go to Application Specific Settings (or something like that. I'm on a Mac now :-) ) and configure the windows to always open at the center, for instance. That helps on the "finding the right coordinates to click might not be easy" issue. =)

emerge -av x11-misc/xautomation
it allows you to move mouse, click, send keypresses...
finding the right coordinates to click might not be easy (although the
package contains som programs that allow you to find specific pictures
on screen...) but sending the correct**tab and enter sequence should be
enough (I expect just pressing enter in the dialog should be enough)
you should be able to use this also with firefox
send alt-f, p, few tabs to get to the "print to file", space, enter,
name of the file, enter....
