The "Remote" button goes to the first remote in the list instead of the default

When I click on the "Remote" button, it always goes to the first remote listed in the "Remote Settings" .

It does not go to the remote marked as default remote (or even origin).

I tried removing and re-adding remotes to change the order but that didn't work. It looks like the order of remotes is alphabetical.

I fixed the problem by removing remotes with names other than the default remote (which is origin in my case) and then re-adding them with their names prefixed with "z-" to ensure that they are not first. It's stupid, but it worked.

Note: I tried just renaming the remotes, but that didn't change the order. I had to remove and re-add with the new name.


Does anyone have a better solution than prefixing the the remote names with "z-"?
