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.

Bring them in on a string. I love this term, if you want to be successful on calling in Elk, try not to just sound like the other caller. We all laugh at each other when we are practicing Elk calling at home or while camping. When I first started calling in Elk, I had no idea what i was doing and it's funny how many I could call in. The biggest Bull that I have called in to date was actually my first. I was making cow calls and screwing it up big time. But it's obvious I didn't screw up...
