IE not prompting to Save Username/Password with Javascript form Submit

HI Experts,

I have a Javascript that submits a form for me:
  function startLogin(name, value){

The problem is that FIREFOX will SAVE the username and password while IE7 will not.  I found that the issue is because IE wants you to use a button to submit the form and not javascript.
<form name="login_form">
<input type="submit"> Submit</input>

My question is: Can I get IE to prompt for a username and password without switching to a "Submit" button?

Instead of relay on browser feature, try to use cookies to store data at client side.
You can either use javascript or server side scripting for this purpose.
