Downloading files from FMS 13


FileMaker Server



Operating system version

OS X 10.8.5

Description of the issue

When downloading files of a solution from the server, the browser opens as many (untitled) windows as there are files in the solution to be downloaded.
This makes for quite a lot of flickering with the popup windows for a solution with 22 files.

When all the windows are finally open, the Safari icon jumps on the screen 22 times.

The result is  22 zipped(!) files in my Downloads folder.

So before I can start working on the files, I need to unzip those 22 files.

Steps to reproduce the problem

In FMS 13 Admin Cosnole, close the files to be downloaded and close them.

Click the Folder icon, select Download Database.

Expected result

I expected to get a dialog (or similar) tat enables me to select a local folder.

And then the files would download to the selected folder. As normal FMP files.

Actual result

A set of zipped files in the local Downloads folder and a bunch of untitled windows in Safari.


No workarounds, just chocked.
