More info: It doesn't seem to be my URLs. First time after reloading the 
app the URL works. But if I go to another card and then back again by 
linking to the same, identical URL it fails. That tells me that the 
widget itself doesn't want to update its own URL setting. I get a blank 
browser widget with no text.
