query.cgi offers a very limited set of sortkeys (bug ID, importance, assignee and last changed). When you click on column headers to change the sort order of buglists, this order is only remembered for the current buglist. If you go else where and then do another query, the old sort order comes back again. The only workaround I found is to hack the URL to pass order=, but that's the job of the JS sort order script to update the cookie for me. I thought this was a dupe, but maybe not.
It is a dupe, and it may be marked fixed already, as the code that fixes it is in my repo.
(In reply to comment #1) > It is a dupe, and it may be marked fixed already, as the code that fixes it is > in my repo. justdave just updated bugzilla-stage right now, and merged all changes, and I can still reproduce this irritating bug. Every time I do a query, it's sorted by bug status again.
Can you reproduce it on the current bmo?
Yes. I forced order=bugs.bug_id once several months ago (by appending it to the URL) so that all buglists fall back to it instead of the irritating bug status. But there is no way to override this when clicking on column headers.
Okay, so it's not a regression, and it's a dup of bug 425619.
