Summary

FileMaker Go 13 Open URL Script Step Fails on first launch

Product

FileMaker Go

Version

13.0.4

Operating system version

iOS 7.1.1

Description of the issue

I have a simple script that includes the Open URL script step to open a URL stored in a field. These URL's are generally links to YouTube videos. When I click the button to perform this script the first time after starting my iPhone/iPad I get an error "Opening Failure":

"failed to open "www.linktoyoutubevid.com"

I then click the Done button and click the same button to open the URL again and it works successfully. If I then navigate to other records it continues to work. If I restart the device it then fails on the first record I attempt to open the URL for.

Steps to reproduce the problem

1. Create script that performs the Open URL script step
2. Attach to button on layout
3. Click button to open Url stored in field

Expected result

FileMaker Go performs the Open URL script step successfully and opens the URL

Actual result

FileMaker Go performs the Open URL script step with error message "Failed to open "www.linktoyoutubevid.com"

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

Opening Failure.

Failed to open "www.linktoyoutubevid.com

Workaround

Click done and then perform script a 2nd time.
