Summary

certain url's / with web portal cause FM13 to crash

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

Filemaker Pro 13.0 v3

Operating system version

Windows 7

Description of the issue

I'm new to FM13, but previously experienced similar problem with either FM12, or FM11 - where it seems to have been resolved.

In short, some stored url values that work perfectly ok in IE, Firefox, & other browsers cause FM13 to crash when layout with web viewer attempting to display that url is accessed.   Can't even deleted the url value or record without accessing via alternate layout lacking the web viewer.

I've used web viewer in various layouts ever since it was first introduced.   Thousands of urls I store launch in web viewer without problem.   Some websites appear to use technology which doesn't bother IE or Firefox, but makes FM13 very unhappy.  See below.

Steps to reproduce the problem

display the url via webviewer:
