Open URL has stopped working

We have a layout that has four Text fields on it. Employees will paste addresses copied from web browsers into these fields. The addresses are to sites that have different bits of info about each specific client. Next to each Text field is a button that performs a script with one step in it: Open URL (No dialog; MyTable::MyField). This has been working great for the past 6-7 weeks but suddenly as of yesterday it does not work at all. Here is what is does on each platform:

 

• On Windows it opens the FileMaker application folder, ie c:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Pro 12.

 

• On Mac it goes to Chrome (my default browser) and shows "about:blank" for the address

 

Also, I can copy the address from any of the four Text fields, paste that address into my browser and it goes to the correct web page on both platforms.

 

There have been no updates done to the FM server or clients. We are running v12 server and clients.
