Embedded browser initialization failed

Dan Williams May 28, 2019 03:58PM UTC


I am having an issue with the Response/Render feature of the embedded browser.

When I click on "Render" in the "Response" tab I receive the following message "Embedded browser initialization failed"

I also ran the Embedded browser health check and I get the following messages.

Checking Platform Support - Success
Checking Browser Binaries - Success
Creating embbeded browser documenation window - Error

Aborting checks due to errors.

Burp Pro v2.0.22beta
Kali Linux with all updates as of 2019-05-28

I have also attempted to update the installation and this did not resolve the issue.

Any ideas?

We’re hoping to release a workaround for this issue in the next update of Burp 2.×.

Shubham – sorry to hear you’re still having difficulty. Can you please email with your Diagnostics and Embedded browser health check – which are both on the Help menu.
