Configure the parameter separator on GET and POST reponses

Actually the parameter separator is the & symbol, but sometimes the applications use different character as parameter separators, for example a lot of tomcat applications use the | character. It could be very very useful if burp allows to set the character separators ( & | ; )

Thanks for your suggestion. We'll look into where this option could be added to different Burp features that do automatic parameter parsing.

+1 We also use ; for some functionality on our site. The RFC states that both &|; are valid for parameter separation.
