Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

There seems to be a small "bug" (or rather unexpected behaviour) related to the auto-complete when browsing tags sorted by new.

When inputting text to the auto-complete the behaviour is as expected. However, if you go on and delete all input from the auto-complete, the behaviour I'd expect is that all tags are shown in descending order from newest to oldest. Instead, the view reverts to what is basically the sorting by name.

Reproduce this by:

Expected behaviour: View of tags in newest to oldest sorting

Experienced behaviour: View of tags in name sorting

There was no logic related to the new tab when filtering tags.

When filtering and clearing the filter, new results will come up in the expected order.

This is in the next build.
