I am having the same problem. I read on another forum that a possible fix could be to Reset Preferences. I have not tried it because it seems like the problem would just come back. I just received a PSE 15 update from Adobe, but it did not fix the problem. List still does not update or change in any way.  (PSE15 on Mac 10.11.6 El Capitan)

I just Reset the Preferences, which did not fix the problem. 

THIS METHOD WORKED for me. Go here:

Close PSE 15

1. I found the PSE Preference File locations for MAC. The Mac has 2 files and 1 folder that I renamed with an x at the beginning of the filename. 

2. On the same web page, I followed the directions for the first bullet under Restore Default Preferences.

3. Launched PSE15 and the list works for now, at least. I did need to update manually some preferences like a few plugin locations, but most was still intact.
