I have the same problem, and it is extremely frustrating, especially as I have a huge list of fonts to try and filter through. Please fix this issue soon!
The solution you mention above does not work as it doesn't allow you to set your "recent fonts" to 0 - you can only select numbers from a drop down menu.
