Password Safe doesn’t always work

Password Safe seems a very good program for keeping track of numerous passwords and usernames and the method of copying and pasting the username and password into the appropriate fields should make logging in very simple with no risk of mistyping the password for example. It certainly works when logging in to PC Advisor.

However, on some sites it does not seem to work. I have found that pasting the username and/or password results in messages such as “Password does not match username” even though they are valid and I can log in at the second attempt by typing the username and password directly into the appropriate fields.

Can anyone tell me why this happens?
