Proxy Original Request Vs Edited Request

Nicholas | Last updated: Sep 21, 2020 03:45PM UTC

Love the new split view on the proxy history with the request/response! The drop down to flip between the original and edited though is a pain. Going back through the proxy history for reporting and flipping between these two with the extra clicks isn't great. Could there be a buttons/tabs or toggle button where the drop down is now to make it less clicks to get between the two.

Thanks a lot for the feedback! I have raised this with our development team. We will update this thread if/when the feature is implemented.

Please, at least make the "Edited Request" or "Edited Response" the default view that is shown. Because the edited version is what is the *actual* traffic, the "Original" is just something you can look at if you need to debug the rules you made. Imagine, I have an extension that changes every request and response (for example because I had to implement Brotli encoding/decoding because Burp is still not supporting it, see https://forum.portswigger.net/thread/brotli-compression-is-not-supported-988bf33f and I have a client and a server that has a hard requirement for brotli). That means when I'm browsing the Proxy view, I have to do three clicks every single time I want to see a different request.
