You didn't mention which browser you're having problems with, however generally if you have the security settings too high or cookies turned off, then you will have problems with sites that require a password to login/post, etc. You must have cookies enabled in IE, that's why it works.
Most newer browsers now allow you to selectively enable cookies for individual websites.
I haven't used an AOL browser for quite some time, however I believe they're simply a version of IE. I personally have had problems with IE and sites that require passwords, when that happens its always been because I had cookies turned off and I always have to selectively allow cookies for the browser to work properly on that specific site. If its an older AOL browser, you might consider upgrading, if its a newer one that's giving you fits, then its most likely cookie related. Try reading your help file and see if it has any suggestions. Also since it works in your IE browser, compare your preference settings and see if you can detect what's different between the two.
It definitely sounds like an issue where the browser you are using is not accepting/saving the cookie. A "cookie" is simply a identifier that allows the server to "know" who is posting what. Since you are repeatedly having to type in your password, the cookie isn't being stored by your browser.
Usually this is a privacy or security setting. You don't have to allow all cookies for the board to work and stop asking for a password everytime you post. Instead you only need to accept cookies that are from the same "domain" that you are visiting.

Elk have been killed close to roads where they could be loaded whole into the bed of a pickup. But it doesn't happen often and I'm not sure that is the experience that I long for. The type of elk hunting that I prefer requires rigorous physical exertion that can cripple someone who is not in shape. Being a college hockey player I have to be in at least fair physical condition most of the year but when one of my buddies got back from the Navy Seals he changed the way I think about physical...
