Bug description:
  When going to the Accounts page of System Settings, and attempting to
  add a Google/Twitter/etc… OAuth based account on my Nexus 4, the plug-
  ins are appearing to crash, and I get sent back to the accounts list.
  This appears to be due to poor network connectivity, as I'm on wifi,
  but the AP is at the other end of my house, resulting in poor
  connection which often drops. If I move the phone close to the AP, the
  pages then load and do not seem to crash, as the connectivity is
  greatly improved.

  Instead of crashing/exiting/whatever is happening, I think these plug-
  ins need to show an error or something, to tell the user something is
  wrong. Otherwise, it simply appears the software is very crashy.

  <https://wiki.ubuntu.com/OnlineAccounts#phone-settings>: "If there is
  a networking or HTTP error in loading the page, or in submitting the
  form, the contents of the Web frame should be replaced by the text
  “This service is not available right now. Try again later.” and a “Try
  Again” button."
