    Does this happen for a specific response? Does it happen if the RAW tab isn't active?

    Most likely, what happens here is that the edit control on Linux hangs when it gets some non-ASCII character.

    Yes.

    For some requests GZIP-unzipping works successfully and RAW is shown.

    For example, If I have JSON tab opened - it's okay, text will be displayed.

    Then I press RAW - and the app hangs and becomes unresponsive.

    Can we get that specific response where that happens?
