The default view in the Post list table is by creation date. I think it's always been this way. It's intentional, so the most recent posts are on the top. Think at when you have hundreds of posts. Most likely, you want to see the most recent ones as first in the list.

When sorting posts by title and then narrowing down the list to only show posts from a specific category, the list is still sorted by title. The same could work for the menu as suggested here. The links just need to keep the query vars.
