Strange search results in Iceweasel Google box

I tried to search for something in Iceweasel’s Google Box and it return three pages of results:

Google search

After that, when I click in results’ page 2 or 3, it returns only two pages of results:

Google search 2

If I make the same search in http://www.google.pt, it returns only two pages of results. I reproduced this several times. Do you think this can be a bug in Google Box of Iceweasel? Do you have some possible explanation for this?

  1. This is common on google: they estimate the number of results and don’t really say the exact amount of results. So, they were estimating that they had 3 pages of results, but when you went to see the 2nd page they found out that all the results would fit there, so they didn’t need 3 pages. This happens with every google interface, with any browser.

  2. Thanks, I didn’t know that and since it didn’t happen in google.pt I though it could be a problem of the box 🙂

  4. A query on clusty:
    “Top x results of at least y retrieved for the query z”

    Sorry, Clusty has exactly the same problem…
