Bug Description

* Impact

The details of the connection settings sometime overlap

* Test case

Connect the computer to a wired ethernet, go to settings and check the connection details, the items should be displayed separated and not overlapping

* Regression potential

Check that the connection details dialog is correctly displayed on different typo of connections, the change is in the layout of the elements so it could impact the layout in other cases

Sorry, the UI doesn't open automatically. You must open gnome-control-center and clic on network?.

Do you have any warning/error if you start gnome-control-center from a command line?

I don't see the issue on the VPN or wifi dialos, I don't have a wired connection to test with at the moment though, would be worth report upstream as well on https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-control-center/issues if you could?
