      Summary

      FileMaker 11.0v4 in Lion crashes when attempting to view PDF in Web Viewer

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      11.0v4

      Operating system version

      Mac OS X 10.7.1

      Description of the issue

      When a Web Viewer attempts to load an http URL to a PDF file, FileMaker Pro crashes.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Make a brand new database. You can do this on FileMaker Pro in non-Lion Mac OS X to demonstrate that it works on a pre-Lion Mac.
      Go into Layout Mode and Insert -> Web Viewer.
      Set the Web Viewer's URL to an http URL to a PDF file (e.g. http://www.filemaker.com/downloads/pdf/fmp10_users_guide.pdf )
      Save the Layout, then go to Browse Mode.
      On a Mac running Lion and FileMaker 11.0v4, FileMaker will display a progress spinner in the Web Viewer for a brief period, then crash.

      Expected result

      Display the PDF.

      Actual result

      Crash.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      None.

      Workaround

      None.
