This one has me baffled completely


I've been using our database for a long time with no issues at all

We are hosting DB on FMServer 12

iPads on production area are all on FMGO13

desktops and laptops in office area all FM12 and above


I have a web viewer set up to show everyone a google drive file - set up as a link - basically the web viewer opens a URL and it shows its contents

normally a pdf or a jpeg.


It has been working fine until this morning when everything went wrong with iPads


link is ok when using laptops or desktops - both windows and macs


when iPads try to open such file, Filemaker Go quits with no warning.

I've been able to replicate the issue

Attached is a small FM file that shows the issue

Obviously I am running this one on a FMserver

and that is how I see the issue happening

Have not tested sharing it from my own laptop


user name and pass are : admin

first record is a dropbox link

second record is a google drive link


when iPad opens on first record, all is ok

As soon as you move to record #2 filemaker go quits (filemaker go for iPhone is same) they just quit.
