How does one get the original blue downloads folder to show up in the dock? Somehow it was removed or deleted from the dock.

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.2), 2.66 GHZ Quad-Core Intel Xeon 6GB 1066 MHZ DDR3

    Click on the item in the Finder's sidebar with the house icon and drag it to the right side of the Dock. If needed, control-click it and change the options afterward.

    thats really easy

    open finder and go into your home directory. you'll see the downloads here, just drag it down to the dock next to the trash and wait for it to expand and make room. once in the dock if its not a folder you can either: rite click (if you have setup) or ctrl click and under display as select folder.

    Thank you, it worked.
    I will remember the ctrl click to select the folder.

    I also lost my downloads folder off the dock. However, when I put it back in the dock and right-clicked to choose "sort by date added" (which is how I assume it was when it was in my dock before) it is reverse-sorting where it only shows the items added earliest and not the newest files that I've downloaded. How do I reverse the sort order to make it the way it should be?

    I also can't figure out how to get the replacement downloads stack to sort with the most recent items first instead of oldest first.

    Is it possible?!

    Again, the full issue is: accidentally delete downloads stack -> create new stack -> sort by date... and you get oldest items first, instead of newest as it originally is. It isn't a major problem but certainly is inconvenient in a several times a day sort of way.
