How to download a FMP12 file via a URL within FileMaker Go

I have a FM Go solution that once in a while asks the user to download a specific FMP12 file.


From FM Go I show the user a live webpage where the user can login - and eventually get one of several different versions of an FMP12 file - depending on the user's access.


In FMP Go 12.0.6 every thing worked fine.

The web page with the login was displayed with a button in the right hand upper corner saying »Open in Safari«



-and from Safari everything worked fine - and the end result was a dialogue asking if the FMP12 file was to be opened in FileMaker Go or in another application.


Like this:

However, in version 12.0.7 this is no longer the case.


The live webpage seems to be stuck inside FleMaker Go's web browser sandbox - and I can not get it to open in Safari.

The live web page with the login functions works fine - but as soon as the resulting downloadable FMP12 file should be presented I get an error saying »Failed to open...«.


How can I get the URL from FileMaker Go to open in Safari ?
