Accepted answer shouldn't be sorted to the top when sorting by Newest or Oldest

On more than one occasion I have found myself fooled into missing key information I wanted in cases where the accepted answer was significantly lower voted than the answer with the most votes.

Therefore, I'd like to configure my viewing such that the answers are sorted primarily by votes instead of prioritizing the accepted answer to the top.

Can I configure my account so this is the case or if not, can we get this added as a feature?

Another possibility, is there a way to configure to have the highest votes always come second (if it was not accepted) when I am viewing the site?

Per Yannis above:

Unfortunately you can't, the accepted answer will always show first when you sort answers by votes (unless it's a self accepted answer, in which case it will only be at the top if it's also the highest voted).
