    Been using opera mini 5 for ages, no problems at all. Love the speed and ease of use, caching previous pages etc etc.
    However, as of 2 days ago, when I Google anything it only shows me 3 web site results per page, instead of the usual 10. It's just a little frustrating to be honest. Not a huge deal, just a bit irritating.

    You'd think there would be an obvious answer, in a settings or preferences section. But there isn't. Neither have I changed anything myself.

    If I change the mobile setting to desktop at the bottom of the Google page, then it shows as many sites as you would get on a PC, but its a chew to have to do this each time. Anyone else noticed a change? And any tips on how I can change the setting, cos I can't find it for the life of me.

    No desire to upgrade to opera mini 6, all I hear are problems.

    Picking this up too. I'm using latest Opera Mini and Mobile, both have this issue.

    I can't find any options to change this within mobile site, so i am thinking it's either Opera's serverside changes or Google.

    Been reading about Google instant pages for Chrome browser also changes search result viewing. Maybe some changes filter down to mobile pages?

    Thanks for letting me know I'm not the only one. That means its not the settings at my end.

    You have to switch to the classic site to view more items per page.

    No, the Opera browsers used to display 10 results, now only 3, with related search options and news/pics/vids at the bottom. A setting has changed elsewhere.
    Clicking through to Classic site is just irritating, another step to go through.

    I've tried clearing the cache, cookies, logging out of Google, no changes. 3 results per page.

    Same problem here in Opera Mini 6. Frustrating, isn't it.

    May be the problem is with the opera mini servers.

    Err, seems like it's fixed.

    Was browsing yesterday, only realised this morning. Normal 10 results per page. Still using the same version of Opera Mini 6. Musta been Opera servers, nothing else changed...

    Same result in Mini 5?

    Yep, sorted for me in Opera Mini 6. Would be nice to have the option to have more than 10 results, but I guess Google would have to sort that out. Still, it's a lot better than just 3 results.
