Recipe for super-duper website cookies?

Some websites I use log me in automatically (Facebook) with full access to the site. Some automatically log me on, but require PW confirmation if I want to do something that may potentially compromise my security (LinkedIn, Amazon). Some websites demand a login each time I access the page (banking/trading sites; some of which save my login ID, none of which save my PW).I know precious little about this stuff. Cookies, is it?

But there are some sites I use that would really be best if I didn't have to log in every time. For instance, I'm doing a professional education course through www.bcplearning.com (http, unsecured) and I hate having to log in each time (especially given the miniscule font and text entry box). I've also been ordering stuff through www.iherb.com (https, secured), and I'd really like to not have to log in each time. Usually, when I have to log into a site I can just put the cursor in the text entry field and arrow down (or mouse scroll down) and pick my login from the list. (Autocomplete, is it? I don't even have the proper vocabulary for this. How frustrating.)
My question is: Is there some way I can force my browser (FF 4.0) to store my login and PW for these sites? In FF, I looked in Options-->Security-->Saved Passwords, and they're all there. How do I get them to automatically log me in with that saved info?
