Webviewer viewing a site with Silverlight can crash FMP


FileMaker Pro


13, 14

Operating system version

Tried on: OSX 10.10, OSX 10.9, OSX 10.8

Description of the issue

Certain sites viewed through the Webviewer can cause FMP to crash.

It seems as the site does some weird things. However i do not expect it to be able to cause a crash of FMP.

My guess is that this is caused by Silverlight as i have gotten a Silverlight error. We don't do anything with Silverlight ourselves so just default settings.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Create a .fmp12 file.
Create a txt field with url.
Create a webviewer which goes to "http://"&url
Create a record.
Fill in the field url:

Expected result

No crash

Actual result

Crash of FMP.
Not always fmp14 sometimes handles it well. fmp13 crashes nearly every time.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

In fmp13;
FileMaker Pro quit unexpectedly.
In fmp14 sometimes:
Silverlight (FileMaker Pro Internet plug-in) quit unexpectedly.
