Edit 4/8: The steps below are now obsolete. I have created a Chrome Extension that does the account sorting automatically and adds a lot more functionality to Mint. See this post for more details. Original post follows:
- On your computer login to Mint.com as you usually do.
- Once you are logged in your URL should be something like https://wwws.mint.com/overview.event.
- Copy and paste the following text snippet and hit enter:
The account balances should be reordered now. You can close the console again by pressing F12.
For reference below are two screenshots for Chrome/Firefox showing you where you need to paste this code. (Click on the thumbnails to see a larger image)
Other option is to create a shortcut on your bookmarks bar. Give it any title and on the URL address just paste the code there. Then you would click on your bookmarklet when you want to fix the account balance order. Edit: If you don’t like having the Bookmarks bar visible here’s a good explanation about how to create a bookmarklet in Chrome for quick access. If you are a Firefox user you could setup a smart bookmark or creating a hotkey shortcut.
I’m also looking into possibly converting this script into a Chrome Extension / GreaseMonkey user script so that changes are applied automatically every time you visit the website.
Feel free to post a comment if you have any questions or suggestions. Below is an unminified/readable version of the code.
