FM 14 Crash on Repeated Container Open


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version


Description of the issue

Multiple openings of container fields (at least PDF's and Videos) will eventually cause FMPA to crash.  This has also occurred with RCC's FM Training course db.  The file had been left open for several days and perhaps 20 videos were viewed before FMPA crashed and caused Yosemite to reboot itself.  A second database contains hundreds of PDF's. After several openings, FMPA crashes without a reboot.  In both cases, relaunching FMPA performs properly until too many container opens are attempted.

Steps to reproduce the problem

See above on RCC's video training course

Expected result

PDFor video should begin "playing" in a Filemaker window.

Actual result

At least FMPA14 will crash.  In some cases a system reboot/restart is forced.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

No error messages.  I have okayed the automatic error report to be sent to Apple in every instance.

Configuration information

16GB 27" mid-2014 iMac running fully updated Yosemite.  Safari, Mac Mail, iTunes and Dashlane are also running


Restart FIMPA
