Tracking changes are sorted by action, not by date (by default)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open attachment 162927 [details] (assuming there is no author set in Options)
4. Edit -> Track changes -> Manage
Notice the list not being sorted by date (or by name). I assume sorted by action
Sorted by action
Sorted by date? Or I'm looking at it from the wrong perspective (I mostly interested in the last changes). Or is this not THE workflow

Is this a thing, or I'm the person who is abusing the tracking changes concept?
They are sorted by order of appearance in the document. Quite natural, I think.. if you select the first change and travel through you visit the changes in order.

Valid user case. In my case I simply wanted to undo the change I made (while retaining the changes someone else made)
Sorting has been proposed in bug 87695 about TC's UX, in particular but not only related to the sidebar. I recommend to make this ticket a duplicate. In case people disagree, I vote for sorting per click on the list header, ideally any. Definitely not a new control or option somewhere.
