Typically when I'm making a map I'll choose a non-default font that I want to use throughout my labels and map surrounds. The problem is every time I open the font menu it jumps down to the current font. I then have to scroll all the way up to the "Recent fonts" section to easily find the font I'm trying to use.
I think a solution to this is to "lock" the recent fonts section at the top of the menu. That way the menu could still open to the current font (which is helpful if you're trying out several fonts), but also show the recent fonts (or perhaps a new "favorites" section).
