Burp Suite crashes for some amount of time or takes a lot of RAM in this case ????

When I look at the Http History,Repeater Tabs If request or response contains large data, after I clicked that request burpsuite freezes for half an hour until that request loads. It looks like a kind of normal text editor behaviour when user tries to open very large text file with simple notepad for example. Is there a way to fix this in the future burpsuite updates? Thank you =D

Hi Could you tell me the approximate size of the responses that are causing this issue? Could you also tell me the content type that they are? There are some performance-improving tips that may help you in this scenario, like disabling syntax highlighting and pretty printing by default.
