Searching from the UK using Minefield (Firefox 4.0b8pre), screenshot says it all:

[twitpic.com...]

Can't see why this would be useful from a UI point of view, so assuming it must be a bug...

It doesn't make sense that it would be anything but a bug. The pages without links are both Google properties... the US and the UK versions of the Google Adwords Keyword Tool. We could perhaps get a conspiracy theory going if they were competing tools.

Probably more a glitch than a bug. I've tried the search several times in different browsers and haven't been able to reproduce the problem. From the screenshot it appears that you're logged in with search history enabled, though I don't see what that might have to do with it... unless you've shown a strong preference for clicking on results without links. ;)

i just reproduced this and figured out what was causing it - adblocker plugin. that cant be a good thing for adblocker to be suppressing organic serp listings.

half of the serps are ads these days... for google's own products.
