Looking for the right upgrade to FM 9 database

We have a fairly recent full turnover at our non-profit. We've inherited FM Pro Advanced 9 as our database on an old computer. We updated to new computers a year ago, but the database is only accessible from the old computer directly or remotely online while the old computer is on & running the FM database (even then, the urls to the database only work sometimes: we had to go through 3 or 4 urls to find one that got us to the log-in page a couple of separate instances).

So far, we've thought that the easiest/smoothest transition to an updated database is to update to FM Pro 12 or 13.

 

1. What FM product (pre-14) is available dependably online (cloud?) for us to get past the almost exclusively local availability of our database?

 

2. We have been ok w/ FM 9 suiting our database needs, except some glitches:

Changing any part of a name in the financial section deletes that donor's file, including their history.

Problem with copy/paste.

Creating a new file/job/sheet must be done in very specific order of fields; Similar issue with searching the database.

 

Is there a version or product that fixed these glitches/new user 'trip-ups'?
