How to settings an applet? That showed only "kB", didn't show "B", "MB", "GB", "TB". How to make alignment on the right edge? Thank you!!!

It does not add newly created interfaces in the list (without restart or re-add the applet in the panel); i.e. when I attach my android phone with USB tethering, it creates a new network interface but this applet then does not show this new interface in the interface chooser.
Please update with this feature.
