a couple of UI bugs

Hi, long time user and supporter :D Two small glitches that caught my eye today: 1. tool tips need to be updated with information that issues were moved to Target tab (and that Target is what you need to save in order to save the issues of a project). Currently, the information is misleading, it says to save the scanner tab to save issues. New users will be confused. 2. Report a bug through browser does not work for me. I click Help>Report a bug> choose chrome in windows application selection popup. After this choice is made, the browser pops up empty (no url entered in field, no mail to support in clipboard). Also frustratingly, the session does not allow me to choose another way to use the report bug event, meaning I am stuck with the empty browser opening up every time I click Report a bug (until I clean my session info out) Thanks for your great work! BR / Rufus

Thanks for this feedback. We'll get the contextual help updated in the save state wizard. Regarding the problem with the "report bug" feature, actually all this tries to do is to open your default mail client and create an email to support@portswigger.net. It's possible that Java isn't correctly able to launch your mail client and is wrongly launching a browser window instead.

Hi, Thanks for your answer. Not much to be done about the report bug issue, then. :) BR / Rufus

Just to let you know that in today's Burp release (1.6.29) we've updated the contextual help in the save state wizard to correctly describe what each option includes.
