Product and version - FileMaker Pro Advanced 13v9 and FileMaker Pro 12v1


OS and version - Mac OS 10.8.5


Hardware - MacBook Pro

Description - Google Maps is consistently crashing FileMaker Pro via the Web Viewer. 

Confirmed across 2 workstations and by simply creating a new file, placing a web viewer

on the layout and assigning the default google maps url to it.


How to replicate - see description

Workaround - none

All variations of google maps will cause this, however, loading the google home page will not,

but if you click the link to google maps from the google home page it will crash.

Java has been updated to the latest version. 

I will be testing this problem as I can with other versions of

FileMaker and other Mac OS versions and will report the results.
