I'm using ArcMap 10.1, and upon bringing in a feature class, the identify tool window shows the attributes in alphabetical order of the field headings.

I didn't try to do this and haven't touched any settings.

Is there a way to make them display once again in the order that they were created (as they still are in the att table)?

Try right clicking the "Field" column header and un-check 'Sort Fields' if it's checked.
