Lightroom Classic: Months should sort in chronological order, not alphabetical order.

When using the Year/Month library organization, it would be far more intuitive if the months were sorted in chronological order rather than alphabetical order (i.e. January, February...).

Are you referring to the sorting of folders in the Folders panel?

Yes.  Currently, it sorts alphabetically.  It should be smarter than that and if it detects month names, it should arrange them in the order that humans would expect.  For example:

2018
  January
  February
  March
  April
  May
  June
  July

Fully agreed. A workaround is to use the numeric format, 2018/06, 2018/07, etc.
