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 adds various enhancements and fixes:
- There is a new command-line option to launch Burp with a specified user configuration file.
- A bug that was recently introduced that prevented license activation in headless mode has been fixed.
- The Content Discovery function now correctly handles applications that have wildcard behavior for file extensions (e.g. those that return a specific response for admin.xxx regardless of the file extension). This eliminates the only known false positives reported by the new Content Discovery engine.
