Filter window reopens right after closing by clicking on the filter bar since 1.6.37

Clicking on the filter bar in previous versions closed the filter window. In 1.6.37 and .38 it reopens it, and it only closes if the mouse clicks somewhere else in the main Burp window (outside the filter window). Here's a video I made about the bug: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aIsITCJ_mYQ I'm running OpenJDK 1.8.0_72 on Debian GNU/Linux amd64.

Thanks for this. The original intention was that people would close the filter popup by clicking off it somewhere in the Burp window, not on the filter bar itself. We did recently change the implementation of the filter popup in readiness for some forthcoming features, which explains the slight change in behavior you observed. If it isn't a problem to just click off the popup elsewhere to close it, then we're happy to leave the current behavior as-is.
