No, once a font selection is made--current font goes to top, and selections afterward are added at the top as well. Kind of a MRU for fonts--intentional.

IIRC behavior of this listbox has been "tweaked" over the years, with some issues e.g. bug 127123

And we already have the legit enhancement to focus font in use as pointer on the list for bug 90161 which is what I think you are asking.

Otherwise, the normal listbox search (e.g. enter the first letter of a font not in view to jump there) is in place is already in place for the font listbox.

I missed the fact that the last used entry's being on top. The current behaviour mimics the behaviour of MSO.

So you're right.. nothing wrong here.
