Burp suite, as painted by Picasso. Not rare at all amazingly enough and not valued for its intrinsic artistic skills.

Update 2020-09-28: Answer from Burp suite support:

Screen redraw issues have appeared on various Windows versions when custom scaling has been adjusted in the display settings. Have you adjusted the default scaling behavior at all? If so, can you try returning that to the default setting? Additionally, can you try adding the following options to your VMOPTIONS file? This can be found in the installation directory.

1: -Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true
2: -Dsun.java2d.d3d=false
3: -Dswing.useflipBufferStrategy=True
4: -Dsun.java2d.ddforcevram=true
5: -Dsun.java2d.ddblit=false

You can add them in order until the issue disappears or add all of them at once.


Is it just me, or is this a common thing? It kinda makes my pentesting experience quite dull. The only resolution is to restart the program if you can find out how and then you lose a lot of your progress. Thanks a bunch…

What’s happening here? Well, this problem occurs after a few minutes or hours. The window seems to “break apart” and the different pieces move around as you move your mouse or …. worse… click around.

When you stop the program, it sometimes seems to corrupt the saved file and you could easily lose days of work.


Big whoop! Wanna fight about it? ... Or maybe... you know... just leave a nice comment.
