- Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
Cookie Monster Was The Culprit
After days weeks months of doing the same thing (logging into Pogo and getting the black screen of death when I tried to open a game room), I remembered to open up my add-ons in Firefox and check for ones that block cookies. AdBlock Plus is a notorious problem, but so was another one I had that was also blocking cookies.
All I had to do was disable that one, go back into Pogo and try to open a game room and ... Bingo! No more problems, and :::blushing::: no more mentally 'blaming' Pogo for my problem. (Sorry Pogo!) So, right now before you get distracted, go to your Firefox menu bar > Click on Tools > Click on Add-ons > Go through the whole list and one by one disable it (or uninstall) > Check to see if you can open a game room in Pogo. If you can, then you are in luck! If not, go back to the addon list and disable another. You get the idea.
