Description of problem: The firewall-applet done not function

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 0.7.1-1fc31

How reproducible:100%

Steps to Reproduce:Install fire-wall-applet (sudo dnf install -y firewall-applet
1. restart the system

Actual results: The firewall applet icon is not show in the top bar. There is no notification of successful connection the the network

Expected results: The firewall-applet icon is displayed in the top bar on the right side and to the left of the panel. The icon has right and left mouse click modes that provide quick access to many firewalld functions. Also there is a notification under the clock the shows status of the network connection. The notification happens with each power on start or restart of the system.

Additional info:
The System Monitor application shows firewall applet loaded with a PID, normal priority with 25.9MB memory. I looked at firewall configuration to see if there is now a setting to activate the applet, but there doesn't seem to be anything like that.

the firewall applet has worked fine under gnome for many Fedora releases. The top bar icon function was unusable with F30, but the connection notifications continued to work. With F30 on Intel systems the Icon was a faint dark grey patch and if you pick just the right spot the right and left click functions still worked. On AMD systems the icon was not present. With F31 the firewall-applet does not work at all.

I installed F31 Xfce beta on my test machine. Then I installed the firewall-applet. The applet worked great! I got the connection notification on restart or power up start. I also got the icon in the top bar that provides the left and right click actions someone might want to do quickly in regard to the firewall. So it would seem that the firewall-applet works fine in a friendly environment.
