In Mass Effect 3, I often find myself looking at the Journal screen to see what missions I have to do, and what systems I have to go to to do them. However, every time I look it seems to start in the middle of the list of completed missions and I have to scroll up to see the incomplete missions. This gets really annoying after doing it a few times. Is there a way to make the list only show incomplete missions or at least start with them on the screen when I open the Journal?
As FAE pointed out, this is a known bug on the Bioware forums. As documented there, this problem appears to be a bug caused by the "new" tag to not be removed properly from one of the quests. That means that choosing "mark all as read" should fix the problem. I tested this and now the mission screen starts by showing the top of the list as it should.
EDIT: It looks like this fix only works for a very short period of time, and it is not repeatable. A simpler but less effective fix, as mentioned in the linked forum post, is to simply sort by name every time you open the mission screen.
