Mozilla is now blocking the Java Add-On for our protection. If you or someone you know enjoyed playing games at Pogo.com ... you are out of luck till Java comes out with a more secure update. From Mozilla:
Java Plugin 7 update 10 and lower (click-to-play), Windows has been blocked for your protection.
Why was it blocked?
The Java plugin is causing significant security problems. All users are strongly recommended to keep the plugin disabled unless necessary.
Who is affected?
All users who have these versions of the plugin installed in Firefox 17 and above.
What does this mean?
The problematic add-on or plugin will be automatically disabled and no longer usable.
When Mozilla becomes aware of add-ons, plugins, or other third-party software that seriously compromises Firefox security, stability, or performance and meets certain criteria, the software may be blocked from general use. For more information, please read this support article.
On the other hand if you use Internet Explorer the games are still playable there. Not sure about other browsers as Firefox is my main browser and IE is the only other browser I have installed.
And, of course, you can't verify that Java is up to date (even though I know mine is) at »java.com/en/download/installed.jsp
because the Add-on is blocked at least through Firefox. Ugh!
