Right click on that folder > Properties
In the location field, change "maxResults=10" to your desired value.

That function is usually done in the Library, Bookmarks->Organize Bookmarks
However, it seems the option to modify the query is also missing on my system.
I remember seeing it during the run-up to 3.0, then it went away, and creating a new profile fixed it, apparently for awhile... I'm not about to create a new profile and lose my history just yet..

EDIT: Even a new profile does not expose the query for edit. I think it was removed when they removed the Advanced search stuff... There is an extension to add back the Advanced Search in the Library.
Note: I've not tried it...

You know what they say about curiosity and cats :) Installed the addon in a test profile, and the query location was exposed, so then you should be able to change the results as noted above.

I have the same question, too. I don't see any option to increase the number of entries displayed in the Recently Bookmarked list.
