Holding down a vowel character in repeater tab crashes burp (OS X)

scarybarry Oct 31, 2018 10:51AM UTC

The following issue seems only applicable on OS X. When pasting 'a' characters in the repeater by holding down the 'a'-key on the keyboard, burp starts to fail. No more characters can be inserted in the repeater request body. The problem is present in the .jar version and in the native version on OS X. It seems to be a problem with the vowels.

On OS X, when working in MS Word holding down the vowel results in a choice of alternatives on the specific vowel. Maybe this is related?

Thanks for your message.

This command might be a fix:

- defaults write -g ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false

Do be aware that this will affect the “hold down” function system wide.

Please let us know if you need any further assistance.
