This question asked on a users list is completely pointless. You may find the
answer in the issue tracker. If not, you may file an issue or vote for an
existing one.

I have a simple Python macro to do the trick. It may be too simple since it
does not include any error handling.

def url_on_record_change(oEv):
    frm = oEv.Source
    cols = frm.getColumns()
    btn = frm.getByName("URL_Button")
    tag = btn.Tag
    field = cols.getByName(tag)
    btn.TargetURL = field.getString()

Having a text field with valid URL strings, you add a push button to the
same form or subform.
Set the button's action property to "Open URL".
Set the "additional info" property to the column name (name of the text
field's data column)
Assign the macro to the *form's* record change event.
Every time when the form moves to some record, the field's URL string will
be assigned to the push button's URL and a click on the button calls the URL
of the field.
