By default, Burp remembers all configuration options when you close Burp
down, and restores these when Burp is next run. You can modify this behavior
via the following items in the Burp menu:
- Remember settings - These options let you specify
which tools' settings should be remembered. You can configure whether any passwords contained in the tools'
configuration (for example, credentials for an upstream proxy server)
will be remembered, and if so whether they will be encrypted using a
master password. On startup, Burp will prompt you to enter the passwords
that were not saved, or to enter the master password, as appropriate.
- Restore defaults - These options reset the
configuration settings within all or selected tools to their default values.
The options panels throughout Burp have "Restore defaults" buttons that
you can use to restore default settings for individual panels.
You can also use the Save and restore state
to save and restore configuration options. These functions lets you save state
files containing settings for particular situations, and restore these when

This release contains a number of minor enhancements and bugfixes, including:
- The Proxy now uses SHA256 to generate its CA and per-host certificates
- There is a new button at Proxy / Options / Proxy Listeners to force Burp to regenerate its CA certificate.
- A bug in the "Paste from file" function which caused Burp to sometimes retain a lock on the selected file has been fixed.
- A bug in the Intruder "extract grep" function, which sometimes caused extracted HTML content to be rendered as HTML in the results table, has been fixed.
