Press Refresh in your Globals tab, RMB on any variable, preferably one used in many FSMs, then select any FSM and go back to the list, the order is changed.
Every single time you select a FSM from the list, the list is again altered. It's very hard to work on this if you need to go through each use of a Global variable, one by one.

Do you mean the order in the context menu or the window? I can't seem to repro here. Is the order not alphabetical? Try clicking the name header - it should toggle between sorting alphabetically and by type.

When you open the Globals window, to a right mouse button click on any variable (after a Refresh, the count must appear), you open a pop up list of all FSMs using it. Being a temporary pop up, there is no control over what can be displayed or more specifically no one can decide of the criterion of ordering. At least if it were say alphabetical and static it would be fine enough, but anytime you select a FSM and then want to display that list again, the list is somewhat shuffled. It becomes outright impossible to hop from FSM to FSM in a quick fashion to check on every single use of a Gvar.
