Can I define a project in JIRA as my default project?

It seems that JIRA is taking the projects rather randomly, if there is more than one defined. Is there a way to define a project as the default project on issue creation?

I also wonder, if there is a way to order the projects in the selection list.

It always selects the previous project you were in. And that works in most cases. There is no option to choose a default project as of now. Maybe you can raise a feature request.
