    Google Maps crashes FileMaker via Web Viewer


      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.

          Thank you for your post.


          Currently, I do not have a Mac OS X 10.8.5 computer available to me.  However, I did test this with both FileMaker Pro Advanced 13.0v9 and FileMaker Pro Advanced 12.0v5 under Mac OS X 10.10.5, and I was unable to make it crash.  I used both Google maps and Google.com clicking on "Maps".


          Let me know if you are able to replicate on more recent releases of Mac OS X.
