Topic: Problems with the Unified "Umbrella Button"

basically i had to uninstall and re-install my Epic Browser a few weeks ago.
at first it had the "red/green proxy and search protection" icons next to the "bookmark" one.
now it's gone and the Umbrella button is there next to the "Customize and control Epic" button.
the problem is that the drop-down list of "options" from the umbrella button do not respond, no matter what or when or how many times i click it doesn't change. not just visually but its not letting plugins run no matter what!
it also always states "New Tab" in the list regardless of what page or tab I'm on.

please help!
