Option to have bookmarks first and default places later
Sometimes my favourites fall in the part of the window out of the window size, so I either have to scroll or enlarge the window to access to them, which I find quite frustrating given that I do these action frequently.
On the contrary I almost never use the places (Documents, Pictures, ...), so what I would like to have would be to have the two sections switched: Favourites on top and Places on the bottom.
What do other platforms do? I don't know in general, but I tries the file manager of Windows 8 and I really enjoyed having the bookmarks on top.
