Bug Description

When I right click and then choose preferences a webpage opens in my (Chrome) browser.
I go to add a user account but no sites populate the drop down.
Also if I add any of my user id's I can't seem to add the account.
If I search my user name it also doesn't do anything.

I love this applet. When it works.

Same here on Ubuntu 15.10 empty drop down menu, can not manually enter site, directly entering user name and search for user does nothing... Useless app if you can not enter an account.

The problem is the python code is referencing the old API when requesting the site list. I tried just changing the URL in the code, but it did not work. The parser probably needs to be changed too.

Downloading the latest source and running "sudo python build && sudo python install in the build directory fixes the problem.
