Cannot select Favorite Host on Open Remote Window


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

OS X 10.7.2

Description of the issue

After launching FileMaker Pro, there are times that I cannot select the favorite host name (IP address) from the Open Remote dialogue window. (Cannot highlight the favorite host name.) This happens pretty often, once I cannot select, can't select until I first quit FileMaker and then relaunch again.
This has been reported to me from my employees using FMP11.0v4 under OS X 10.6 also.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Launch FileMaker Pro.
Select Open Remote.
Favorite Hosts will appear on the favorite hosts window.
Try to select one but cannot highlight the desired host.

Expected result

Desired favorite host should be able to be highlighted

Actual result

Cannot highlight (select) any of the favorite hosts

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear



Quitting FileMaker Pro and relaunching will make it possible to highlight (select) the favorite host without any problem.
This issue seems to happen occasionally on first launch of FMPro. Haven't had same issue after the second attempt (after quitting and relaunching once.)
