Un-interactable repeater tabs

Hi, this bug has been around for more than a year now, and I'm unsure what's causing it. Current platform: - MacOS Catalina v. 10.15.7 - MacBook Pro 2019 - 2,6 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i7 - 16 GB 2667 MHz DDR4 - AMD Radeon Pro 5300M 4 GB Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB Installed JDK: java 15.0.1 Issue: When sending a request from proxy to repeater, the repeater tab often is un-interactable (cannot edit the request in the repeater by clicking it). Intercepting a request in the proxy once and then trying the forementioned repeater tab again fixes the issue, but it persists very often. Many of my coworkers have the exact same setup, but none of them are experiencing this issue. Any ideas what might be causing this?

Also, using Burp Suite Professional v. 2020.12.1.

Hi, Just to clarify, you are intercepting a live request in the proxy tab (with the "Intercept is on" configuration set) and are then sending that request to the Repeater tool? If so, when using this method does the issue arise consistently or is it apparent only occasionally? Is it possible for you to create a video of this behavior, so that we can see exactly what steps you are taking, and then attach it to an email to us at support@portswigger.net?

Hello, Yes, that is the correct workflow I'm doing. It does actually seem to happen fairly consistently now that I'm testing it. I have sent a screen recording of the behavior along with a "walkthrough" for the recording to the email address you provided. Thanks!

I think I have a similar issue on iMac with macOSX11.1 Big Sur. Thanks for posting...I thought I was the issue!! Just a glitch that happened(s)very intermittently. Did you ever get a fix?

Hi, We are still investigating this issue to see if we can replicate it.
