Search history is jumbled

I really would like "search history" (the dropdown bar on the main window) to be in time sequence. By this I just mean the standard behavior for such things: most recent search at the top, then older ones going down.

As it is, Everything seems to save only some of the searches, and the most recent ones (if they appear at all) are near the middle of the list. This is so unpredictable that I simply don't use the feature - but I'd like to.

Thanks for a wonderful program which continues to help me enormously (and I have donated a couple of times).

Dropdown is Search History, ordered by Search Count, & then by most recent for duplicate counts (it looks like).

@therube - thanks for trying to explain this (though I don't know what "Search Count" is). But I'd really like at least the option of a plain historical order i.e. MRU. That's what my brain is conditioned to look for.
