Embedded browser use 100% CPU on Linux

Hi, I'm using Burp on Linux with .sh installer version 2022.3.9. First I couldn't start the embedded browser because of the sandbox error so I ran: find .BurpSuite -name chrome-sandbox -exec chown root:root {} \; -exec chmod 4755 {} \; After that the embedded browser starts but it's consuming all CPU making it impossible to do anything until killing the process. Not sure if it's related to the sandbox but I mention it.

Thanks for your message. Were you using a normal user or the root user when you installed Burp? What message did you see before you made the permissions changes to the chrome-sandbox file? Can you email support@portswigger.net with details on your setup and the output from Help -> Diagnostics within Burp so we can take a closer look, please?
