Your best bet is using a UI that is still maintained by the dev that created it. There is a list of maintained UI here
If you like core, might want to look into Drox.
I worked on the core ui awhile back and I think i did a fix for that window but of the top of my head I couldnt tell you for sure. Your best bet is to look thru all the patches if you are thinking about sticking with core, but not my advice honestly.
