This is a peculiar bug which seems to have appeared with a recent Chrome update.
Create a Web Viewer control with the following content:
"data:text/html,<html><body bgcolor=\"#EEEEEE\">HELLO</body></html>" Then view the layout in WebDirect in Chrome. You'll notice it doesn't display anything. Remove the bgcolor and it works as expected. It also works in FileMaker.
There are numerous workarounds but I can't find out how to fix it.
Anyone else experienced this?
This is a bit of a bizarre one which ate 90 minutes of my morning - so I thought I'd share it in case anyone else encounters it.
One of our FileMaker use cases has an embedded web viewer displaying a Google Sheet (it's a runtime Kiosk app but the same issue applies to FMPro). This worked well and the users could update the spreadsheet (a rota).
However this morning I noticed a strange bluey/grey overlay (see attachment). After quite a bit of digging it seems Adobe Flash is still installed in IE 11 and this was causing some form of issue.
I disabled Flash in Group Policy (gpedit.msc) and the problem went away. There are other ways of disabling it which should also work.
This was on Windows 10. I have now tested it on two machines so it should be fairly easily reproducible.
I assume it's somehow caused by the 2nd October update to the Flash control.
Anyway hope this helps if others have the same issue.
I am viewing a records location through What3Words and the web viewer performs as expected on OS X 10.10.x and 10.11.x but when I put the file on OS X High Sierra the web viewer gives the error, "SSL Error, Unable to create a secure connection to the server". All connections are from the same location. Can anyone assist please
I´m not sure why but the WV shows the correct result in some computers and devices, but in other just shows an empty page (please see attached file with WV including code).
This is the result after testings:
- It doesn't work on my Mac (10.11.06)
- It works on my iPhone
- It works on my iPad
- I works on one of my colleague´s Mac (10.12 I believe)
- It doesn't work on another collegue's Windows
I have attached the file with the wv, is this working for you? any clue why this is happening? any help would be very much appreciated!!

When you have a webviewer in a layout as you change layout the webviewer reset it self, on mac activity app you can see the webviewer process disappear.
If the webviewer is in a popup if you close the popup the process remain still up, you have to change layout if you want to close the webviewer process.
