BurpSuitePro freeze/unusable since v2020.8.1 on linux (vbox/debian)

Hi burp team ! I just bought the pro version, installed on a Debian 10 (full fresh install), inside a virtualbox VM as guest (host=windows 10), with virtualbox extension installed. Got 32Go RAM on the host, 16Go in the Debian guest, 4 VCPUs I started with the latest version (2020.9.2), using burpbrowser. After a few requests, CPU jump burp side, then complete freeze for a few minutes (proxy history view). Then, i've installed previous versions: * 2020.9.1: same behavior * 2020.9 : same behavior * 2020.8.1: no more lags ! Note that one of the changes between 2020.8.1 and 2020.9 is the version of burpbrowser : * >=2020.9 = 85.0.4183.83 * <=2020.8.1 = 84.0.4147.125 Cheers Note: @burptech ping me if you want to troubleshoot on my setup if you want.

Hi Would you be able to send us a video of this behavior to support@portswigger.net? Could you also send us your diagnostics information? You can find this by going to "Help > Diagnostics" within Burp.

I'm sorry but i can't reproduce any more :( staying with 8.1 for now. I consumed the licence validation limit.

Hi I've provided you with some additional activations - these will be valid till the 21st of October.

Thanks for the problem description, had the same / similar issue. In my case (Burp running in VM) the Burp instance would just "freeze", so the entire GUI becomes unresponsive and the proxy functionality also no longer works. For me it was resolved by not storing Burp project files in the shared folder with the host operating system but always on the local disk of the guest operating system.
