Browser response not visible

Ivan Nicola Biagi Jun 01, 2019 04:32PM UTC

I have tried with java 8 and java 12 but without luck.
When i try to view response in browser from Burp Suite Professional 2.0.22beta I can't actually see the response.
I click to render the response, it work but all i see is a blank page.
But i've noticed that the response is actually rendered as if i try to click somewhere i get mouse animations like when i try to click a button in website.
I try to check the browser health in help tab and i get no errors.
After first render it look like the engine crash as in the dashboard i get an error of browser server and to check the health.

Thanks for this report. Which OS are you using?


Ivan Nicola Biagi Jun 03, 2019 12:17PM UTC
I'm using Windows.
On Linux this error doesn't appear, but after a while it gives "embedded browser error" but checks are fine without errors.

We’ve just released an update for Burp which fixes this issue in Kali Linux and hopefully in Windows. It also provides us with additional diagnostic information around the embedded browser.

If the new version doesn’t fix your issue, let us know.

Actually nothing has changed, no response visible and browser "crashes" after a while, but checks don't find issues.
Always on Windows 10

Do you have performance feedback enabled (User options > Misc > Performance feedback)? If so, could you provide us with your diagnostics (Help > Diagnostics)?

You can email us at support@portswigger.net. Thanks.

We expect this issue to have been fixed in the latest release: v2.0.24beta.

Let us know if you’re still experiencing issues.

Sorry for delay response, I will test it asap!

Ivan Nicola Biagi Jun 14, 2019 09:57PM UTC
Yeah, everything is working!
The only thing i've noticed is that for a scan many "burp browser" process are launched, is that voluntary?

Yes, this is intentional. The embedded browser is used to audit JavaScript on each page and a fresh browser instance is used for each run, to avoid cross-contamination.
