Window issues on Mac OS 10.10

On Mac OS 10.10, when Burp Free is running, it doesn't show up in the dock, or in the command-tab window switcher. So it's difficult to switch to it. When you minimize it, its window does show up in the dock. But then when you click it, it appears behind any other open applications' windows.

There is a known issue with the latest version of Java when running on the latest version of OS X Yosemite, which prevents Burp's window from ever getting the focus. If this is the same issue affecting you, you might also see that keyboard input doesn't reach the Burp window. We believe that Oracle are working on a fix for this issue. In the meantime, older versions of Java (by 1 or 2 minor updates) are unaffected by this problem.
