cannot use input fields for entries on OS X (El Capitan)

I'm having trouble using input fields in Burp suite pro (latest version). For instance when actively scanning a wensite with a user/login area and burp suite asks me to enter the login credentials for a form, I cannot put anything in the entry fields. They just don't respond (staying orange). In effect rendering Burp suite unusable for work.

This was an issue with certain versions of Java for a while. Please can you try updating to the latest Java release and see if that helps?

I had to remove all java versions (JRE and JDK) from OS X, reboot and then cleanly install the latest Oracle java JDK. After that everything seems to work. OS X users have t be aware that they also remove the outdated java jdk that Apple has delivered from older OS X versions.
