|Summary||0017102: Playlists: Sort became permanent on Playlist change|
|Description||Sort can became permanent on Playlist change even it was just for view.|

3. add number of tracks
4. Change sorting to Title
5. Click on any other playlist
6. Click back -> # are updated to title sort.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Fixed in build||2275|
||2. Strange but when that happen then user can't rearrange playlist with D&D (also seen in video)|
||Note that there are numerous similar/related issues affecting the Now Playing list as per 0016622.|
Not able to re-arange unsorted playlist is intentional (to not overwrite original sort), it works this way in MM4 too.
On your video the playlist order isn't truly changed, just the # shows incorrect values, you can press F5 to get original order.
Anyhow, as discussed over IM the solution is to reset to the default playlist order whenever user resturns to the playlist.
i.e. not persist the dis-ordered playlist once the current view is exited (like in MM4)
||Fixed in 2275|
Now it looks more natural.
HINT: if user wants to preserve current custom sort he can open it in new tab and continue browsing.
