Thank you for your post.
Do you happen to have the Admin Console launched when this occurs?
If so, what web browser are you using?
What other Windows are open when this occurs?
I look forward to your response.
I tend to have a readily-available script with Re-login script step called, so that I can login with admin credentials as needed. And I may use it to login to less-access credentials for testing these features while developing.
This does not solve any other causes, but is a way to avoid the restart.
This is on the client, not the server. I'm trying to log in with FileMaker Pro Advanced, so I can work on a solution. It happens to both local and hosted solutions (which work fine at other times), so it's something that either happens to FMPA, or the Mac OS (since quitting and starting FM makes no difference, but restarting the computer fixes it). It has persisted through several different OS updates, and multiple versions of FMPA (12, 13, 14).
Note too that FM still recognizes the Option key, e.g., when I hold it down I see menus yielding their option commands. It specifically affects opening any solution when I try to use alternate credentials.
That's a good solution – I'll add that script to solutions that are under development. Thanks!
I hit this problem running OS X El Capitan 10.11.4. I was unable to force the login dialogue to show when opening a file. It happened in FMP 12, FMP 13, FMP 14. A full system restart fixed the problem.
Thanks for flagging the problem bpanhuyzen.
