Why does IE only remember some usernames and passwords?

    This has confused me for a long time. There are some sites that require a
    login and then IE will ask me if I want it to remember that username and
    password. There are other sites that also require a password but IE never
    asks me if I want it to remember the username and password. I always want IE
    to remember the usernames and passwords, any way for me to make that happen?
    Too many sites to have to remember all the different usernames and
    passwords.

    Some web sites / servers can be configured to not offer that option (for
    security, of course).

    Well, since IE doesn't remember certain passwords, I have to rely on an
    addon to remember them. I hate typing them in every time I visit a site. I
    tried the Billeo addon but it makes IE7 crash a LOT. Anyone have any other
    suggestions for a password rememberer?
