How to fix Theme gets reverted back to white issue

If for some reason the dark theme won't be enabled automatically next time you run Burp you need to save your settings configuration. This option allows you to export a config json file that contains all your current configurations.

So if theme or any other setting changes you can simply upload user settings and you will have the same settings enabled again on your BurpSuite

To export user settings, go to Settings >> Manage Global Settings >> User settings >> Save User Settings and choose the location where you want to save the configuration file
