Bug description:
  I have recently noticed that in Nautilus in the "Recent" section where
  recently used files are shown, it is sorted so that the newest items
  are at the top, and the oldest at the bottom, and this is
  understandable for this section, however, it does not allow one to
  change to a different sorting method such as sorting them

  When I try clicking on the things in this bar nothing happens and
  there is not even an arrow to indicate the current method in use:

  And there aren't any options here as there normally would be:

  And I get the same with the thumbnails mode. Now, I don't know if this
  was something intended, but it is not very useful not to allow one to
  use other sorting methods.
