The "items per page" stat is being remembered permanently (cross device, attached to our account, not via a cookie) in the search results of any site.
However, in the global search on stackexchange.com, this stat is being reset whenever searching again, choosing the items per page affects only that single search:
I assume this is because stackexachange.com is not attached to ordinary account behind the scenes, so can't use the same server side cache. This can be bypassed by using a different cache probably, or use the network profile if possible.
Can it be done/fixed?
