Description of the issue

Once or twice a week find I'm unable to move between Layout and Browse modes as expected. Although I seem to be in Browse mode the Layout label still appears and am unable to Quit FileMaker Pro or close windows. Force Quit only option. File opens with no errors reported.

Unable to find how this happens except to say seems to occur when switching rapidly between Browse and Layout while developing.

Expected result

You should be able to move between modes

Actual result

Although you appear to have moved to Browse mode the  "Exit Layout" button still is shown and the label at the bottom of the screen still displays "Layout" how ever you are able to Browse records as if you were in Browse mode. Attempting to close window and you you get no reaction and the "Quit FileMaker " menu item is greyed out.
