1. Mediadownloader displays not more than 63 images in "ajax api" mode.

2. Context menu "browse" doesn't open a site in "public" mode but an image. In "ajax api" mode it opens a site.

Hi,
I have used this software for a long time. Suddenly a few days ago it stopped working, image search shows images searched and parsed but doesnt display anything. The download window shows up but everything stays at 0%.
I am on Kubuntu Maverick with latest updates from backports but no launchpad.
Can you help ?

In first time the "Starting from" field is "0" which is means 0 results. May be a new user cannot understand why he has nt resaults, will be better to turn it "1" by default

hi dglent,

thanks for the package.
The "Starting from" field is meant.... better to do an example:
I want 100 results and put 100 in the "number of results" field. When I am done with downloding, removing or such, I want to load other 100 results, so in "Starting from" I must put 100 so it will displayed results from 100 to 200.
0 means to start from the beginning of results from Google.... here.... I got you ... from the first image Google gives :)
