I have the same problem too. Have installed the latest version of EF, done everything by the book, exceptions in both antivirus and firewall, also running as admin. Installed EF over again and so on. Nothing helps, and I still miss the mini UI button. I see myself as a long time experienced user, but this thing I can't fix. Has there been an update where this were supposed be fixed? If so, why does it still not work?
