Cannot start embedded browser

Hello, I have really been enjoying Burp. However, since the last few updates, I cannot render responses. I run the emmbeded browser healthcheck and get this error: Unable to start browser: DevTools listening on ws:// I am running the latest version of Burp (2020 9_1) and I am running Kali 2020.09.14. I've disabled the sandbox feature a while back, which did the trick up until I updated burp to version 8. the embedded browser hasnt worked since. Can someone give me a clue as to what I am doing wrong? I would really love to use my burp again properly. Thank you!

Hi Chuck, Can you please send further details to support@portswigger.net? The latest versions (2020.4 onwards) of Burp no longer support Java 8. You will need to use Java 9-14. If your issue persists with a compatible Java version, please email us for further assistance.
