I may be mistaken, but aren't you the one who actually wrote that?

With that said, it searches from top to bottom for me. I don't know
why it's different for you.

Welcome to July, Mark! :)
Being smaller was one benefit, but it's mostly for better
organization. We have 14 items in the formatting toolbar, which makes
for an unwieldly array of icons. A bit of organization has improved it
a long way.
Of all the changes we've made recently, this is one of the least contended.
Of course, you don't need to use a drop-down menu to make something
bold; the Ctrl-B binding is easier than both toolbar layouts.
