First... I really like the script.

Second... I have the script included in the top of my page. After the user signs in I read the cookie to determine a variable for a report. When the report runs the first time it is empty. If I refresh the page it works very nicely using the md5 password saved in the cookie.

Any ideas why I have to refresh the page to get it to work correctly?

I am new to php.

Do you check it like this in your program?
if ($_COOKIE['verify'] !== "")

Password protector sets cookie using setcookie function. I think cookie goes into $_COOKIE array only after page is refreshed.

If you want script to populate $_COOKIE array first time, then replace following code in the password protect:
    // set cookie if password was validated
    setcookie("verify", md5($pass));

    // set cookie if password was validated
    setcookie("verify", md5($pass));
    $_COOKIE['verify'] == md5($pass);
