Before I upgraded to OS X Lion, when I click a stack, it would show the very top. Now, it shows the very bottom of the menu meaning you would see the "Open in Finder" option after you click it. Now, I sorted my download folder by "Date Added" and its very annoying that I am seeing the oldest files first rather than the newest ones. I would have to scroll all the way to the top to access the new files. How can I have the newer files be shown first aka ascending order?
I had mine set to List as well and noticed the problem right away after upgrade (my Downloads folder is huge).
I think this is a bug. The grid view has the correct initial position (at the top of the reverse chronological ordering)
I suspect we'll need to switch to grid view until a patch comes along. :(
