My prefix, suffix and infix are right in front of you right now, displayed in this order:
What am I?
How old, what cat?

Given the jumbled nature of our -fixes, perhaps you're
This would match the given order if what's "in front of you right now"
is not limited to the question text, but also includes the topline bar with "Asked / Active / Viewed"
Thus the suffix would be
-ED from "Asked / Active / Viewed"
And from there the prefix becomes:
DIS- from "displayed in this order"
and the infix is naturally
-ORDER- from "displayed in this order"
Note that neither of these probably qualify as answers... However, they are interesting (at least to me!)
1: (Possibly counts):
AMIN = AM + I + IN does appear in the right order as a whole word, though the infix overlaps the suffix. Also, AMIN is in Merriam-Webster as an alternate spelling of a word borrowed from India, so I'm not sure it is that legit either.
2: (Possibly cheating):
ORDINAND = ORD + IN + AND does appear right in front of you, and is in the right order only if you are allowed to break words. "ord" as part of the word "order" (though it is a legal prefix word, as it has its own dictionary entry) and "in" as part of "infix" in the list.
One possible answer is
With the suffix, prefix, infix identified as follows
However, if you want the affixes not to overlap, then we also have the following (close to Graylocke's first answer)
With the suffix, prefix and infix identified as follows
