Google serves different search results between their country TLDs and google.com. In general, because it is international and not "localized", google.com is much more competitive.
You may also find different results depending on the location where the user is when they do a search. It's also possible to have some penalty or filter applied on google.com and not on google.fr. Try a Site Search [webmasterworld.com] for Google geo-location, ccTLD and so on.
