Yep, after you "go stack URL xyz" THAT stack is the defaultstack and thus field "info" will be presumed 
to be on the current (first) card of the "online" stack. 

So you will need 
1. to set the defautlstack back to the "calling" stack before putting THE RESULT into fld "info"
or 
2. do something like this:

ON mouseUp
  put empty into field "info" of this card
  put the long ID of fld "info" of this cd into tInfoFieldID
  go stack URL field "target" of this card in a new window
  put the result into tInfoFieldID
END mouseUp
