So this 'issue' has been happening to me for the last few versions of burp suite pro. right now I am running the latest .18 version. In the extender tab i have the option to automatically reload extensions on startup selected. when i start up burp suite pro later on the extensions will load but for some, (randomly) it will load multiple same extensions. (ie. it will sometimes load 3 sqlipy tabs, and 2 additional scanner tabs, etc. etc) is this a configuration error i am over looking? or? Thank you

Thanks for this feedback. Burp should only be reloading the same extensions that you had loaded when Burp was last shut down. If you observe this happening again, can you let us know whether the table at Extender / Extensions shows multiple entries for the affected extensions? Or whether each extension only appears once, but appears to be loaded multiple times (with multiple UI tabs added, etc.).

Yes, i can confirm when i reload burp suite as stated previously, multiple entries show up in extender/extensions and multiple UI tabs are displayed.

Just to let you know that today's update to Burp hopefully fixes this issue. Let us know if you see any other problems, and thanks again for your feedback - much appreciated.

Hi Ads, I have just replied to your other forum post but to confirm: The configuration file should be located under the Users/<username>/.BurpSuite directory on Mac. If you are using Burp Professional the configuration is entitled UserConfigPro.json (for the Community edition this is UserConfigCommunity.json). There is an extension section within the configuration file and each extension has a 'loaded' parameter which should be set to 'true' if they have been loaded into Burp. Is this setting reverting to 'false' when you observe these issues?
