UI Broken / Tabs gone after opening a saved temporary project

Christiaan | Last updated: Sep 20, 2023 07:48AM UTC

Hi team! Yesterday I was using a temporary project in memory. At the end of the day I still saved it using: Project -> Save copy. After opening the saved project today, it opens without any of the tool tabs (target, proxy, repeater, etc..). There is no way to reopen these tabs as the menu option "view" is not there either. If you need any further information please let me know. With kind regards, Christiaan

Hi Christiaan Which version of Burp are you using? When reopening the project file, did you see any error messages or corruption warnings? Can you please open a new project and send us your diagnostics information? You can find this by going to "Help > Diagnostics" within Burp. Please feel free to email us at support@portswigger.net if you do not wish to attach your diagnostics here.

Hey folks, I have this exact issue and don't seem to be able to find a solution Any time I try load the file, it doesn't load the UI, I only see the Burp + Project Tabs up top left, then the Dashboard + Learn tabs on the bar below. I tried load the same file in a different install within a VM and got the same result. This happens when I double click on the project file to open, when I load the projector when I load it from within an open temporary project or when I "open existing project" on first load of the app.

Also to note: There are no errors or warnings, the load goes smoothly and I can see the "issue activity" window within the Dashboard tab with the project data in it but the rest of the UI menu buttons or tabs disappear.
