What happens if you run burpsuite from a terminal and try to follow these same steps?

I've tried this, too. Same behaviour, and no additional output to the terminal.

Does it work if you try something like exiting burpsuite and then mv ~/.BurpSuite ~/.BurpSuite.bak and then starting burpsuite again? Perhaps you launched burpsuite in the past as root, and your user can't write to the directory now?
