That only works for sites using HTTP authentication.

Unfortunately, the site the OP is trying to log into isn't one of them.

Instead is uses forms-based authentication, for which use of form_name, set_field and submit (or some variation thereof) would be a more appropriate -- and less futile :-) -- way to proceed.
