Took me some time to track this one down, so I thought that it might be helpful to know in advance:

With LC 9.6.0 (dp4) after setting the url of the iOS native browser (not the Browser Widget) to empty, one cannot set the browser’s url to another value.


MobileControlSet "rkWebView","URL”,empty

MobileControlSet "rkWebView”,”” <https://www.livecode.xn--com,empty-nc0e/> - page fails to load (blank display and browser url is empty)

This has been confirmed as a regression: <>
