HTTP Responses Are Mangled

Hi, While testing through Burp's native browser, the HTTP responses that I see are mangled. Here is an example of the "text" that I see in Burp's proxy: �����í[ënÛÆ~{"B)¶ãÔ±\5°â¸u×Fœô!¹²xÌ‹@®|‰¢w9Ïržì|³r)Q’U·çGN ¹;{™ùæ› Everything was working last week and the only change that I made (I believe) was updating my license earlier this week. Any thoughts on why this is happening and how to fix it? Thank you

Hi Nathaniel, Is this happening for all sites that you are proxying or just for certain ones? Similarly, are you seeing this for all responses or just certain ones (from the sites where you are seeing this)? Is it possible for you to send us an email to support@portswigger.net and include some screenshots of the requests/responses where you are seeing this?

Thanks Ben! It resolved itself now, but I am not sure how/why. I am wondering now if it was a problem with one of the extensions, as starting a clean session without extensions loaded did work. If it happens again, I will email support with some screenshots and evidence.
