Input control to change primary default role is available here for the single site WordPress installations only. Under multi-site you need to change primary default role on per site basis. Please be aware as default roles selection is the only for all network, selected roles should exist at the subsite in order new user get them from WordPress by default.

By default User Role Editor load jQuery UI CSS (including images) from its own local copy. Users of Pro version have the option to get these file from the jQuery CDN. Just activate “Download jQuery UI CSS from jQuery CDN” option as on the image below
