That some categories on update.mozilla.org have multiple pages is not obvious,
perhaps because it is unexpected and the font is so small. With the number of
different categories, it seems unnecessary to break it down into pages. Showing
more than 5 extensions at a time would be nice.

I think breaking it down as it is is fine - and having 5 is not that bad,
although I would personally choose 8....

What I think would help is to have the page numbers more prominent.  I see so
many scripts that try to hide the page numbers, and I can never (for the life of
me!) figure out why this is done.

I write forum software in PHP, which obviously has a lot to do with
pagination.... and I've found that making the page links as big as the rest of
the text on the page makes them more noticable and not at all unsightly.

As an example, please see:
http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?board=1.0
(Pages: [1] 2 is bold and the largest text on the page, because of that.)

(oh, and I would change this to OS -> All.)

Thanks,

The pages exist because of site growth... Learning a bit from the horrid loading
times of ExtensionRoom, etc.
Default is 5 but I might change it to 10.

As for the page #s, i'll try bumping up the size a bit, and seeing if it looks
right. :-)

Fixed this...
Bumped the size of the Pg #s up, and the default items per page is now 10.
