Bug in Choose File button of Darcula Theme

Thomas Nov 07, 2018 09:17AM UTC

Hi Burp,

Using the new darcula theme of Burp pro, it seems that when being prompt for either:
- Temporary project
- New project on disk
- Open existing project
the "Choose file" buttons of that window are not working.

When reverting to the default theme, the buttons work properly so it seems it is linked to the used theme.

Kind regards,

Thom, these buttons are working for us. We’re using the platform installer version of Burp Suite Pro on macOS Mojave 10.14. Which OS and Java version are you using?

Thomas Nov 08, 2018 10:29AM UTC

I am using Burp Suite Professional v2.0.11beta and here is my environment:

"Linux kali 4.18.0-kali2-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.18.10-2kali1 (2018-10-09) x86_64 GNU/Linux"

"openjdk version "11.0.1" 2018-10-16
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 11.0.1+13-Debian-2)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 11.0.1+13-Debian-2, mixed mode, sharing)"

I just made a full update but the issue remains.

Kind regards,

Hi Thomas

Thanks for the additional information.

What happens if you use the platform installer version of Burp Suite?

Jax Teller Nov 27, 2018 07:02PM UTC
I have the same problem:

* Linux kali 4.18.0-kali2-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.18.10-2kali1 (2018-10-09) x86_64 GNU/Linux

* java version "1.8.0_91"
* Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_91-b14)
* Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.91-b14, mixed mode)

* Burp Suite Professional v2.0.12beta

I shouldn't be forced to run the platform installer, there are advantages in having the self-contained JAR file.

I've uploaded the strack traces from starting Burp and then clicking one of the buttons:

We’ve confirmed this behavior in Kali Linux. We’ve added a note to our development backlog to get this fixed. In the meantime we recomend using another theme.

Thomas Jan 24, 2019 12:59PM UTC

Sorry for the lack of reply since then, have been very busy. In the meanwhile the update 2.0.14beta solved the issue.

Kind regards,

Thanks for letting us know Thomas.
