Why won't IE ask to save my login details for certain sites?

When I log in to certain sites, IE won't ask me if I want to save my username and password. One example is some bank account sites.

"Yes. There is a custom autocomplete HTML attribute that allows page author to turn autocompletion off. Also if both of the following conditions are true:

The page was delivered over HTTPS
The page was delivered with headers or a META tag that prevents caching

autocompletion will be turned off too.
Apparently there is no way to do this with Internet Explorer standard settings. Maybe some external password manager like Roboform (or any free alternative) can solve this issue."
