Sort file/folder list when folder cruising or at the very least sort by alphabetical order as default

Folder cruising is a very handy feature that I never use because there is no methodology to the list of files and folders in the current folder dropdown.  At the very least, the list in folder cruising dropdowns should be sorted in alphabetical order and at best, customizable sorting like in the main folder view, even if the sort type can only be chosen in preferences.

This drives me mad! It would be so much more useful if it was in alphabetical order. I’m often cruising folders with dozens of sub folders and it really gets in the way that the list is in random order. Typing the first few letters of the target will find the folder, but that gets tiresome.

Could you please write in steps what to do to reproduce this problem. I never saw anything like 'Folder Cruising' in Bridge. I looked for it on google now. There is something like it but I have no idea how and where to choose it. I'd like to reproduce it, so please tell me where / how to find it...

With the Path Bar enabled (Window menu > Path Bar), clicking on the chevron beside a folder in the path displays a drop-down list of any enclosed folders (under the option to Show Items From Subfolders). "Folder Cruising" is the action of navigating folders using the Path Bar, you can see a menu item with that name at the top of the drop-down menu.

I saw on google how that looks like. I see there is 'Stop Folder Cruising', then 'Show Items from Subfolders', and under dividing line list of folders.

In my case (in latest Bridge, but also in CS6) I see only 'Show Items from Subfolders', and under dividing line list of folders.

There is neither 'Folder Cruising' nor the more 'Stop Folder Cruising' label, under / over 'Show Items from Subfolders' right mouse button clicking folder / or an arrow.

Could you then tell me example of folder structure I can reproduce it as I guess it works in specific case or you can access it anytime. There must be some reason I don't have it :/

Ignore "folder cruising", it's just the name of the function! The issue is that the list of folders shown in the drop-down menu is not in alphabetical order, at least on Mac, it may work fine on a PC, I don't know. It's been an issue for years. Problem seems to occur with any folder structure, but it's not a problem when the list is just a few folders, but I'm hitting the problem with dozens of folders.

Seems like it would be an easy fix for Adobe, but it's been like this for years.
