Apply config requires clicking different menu

FreePBX on PBX in a Flash, Asterisk 1.8

Ever since upgrading to FreePBX 2.10, I’ve noticed two deltas from previous versions when upgrading modules:

a. The pop-up status window only prints text after the module upgrades are complete, which depending on module size may take awhile; and

b. The menu item to apply config changes only appears if I click away from the modules menu and into any other menu.

Of these, (b) is the greater annoyance since it requires an extra step not needed with previous FreePBX versions.

Is there a means of having the apply-config-changes item appear directly on the modules menu (after module(s) upgrade), as in previous versions?
