Use the following:

\usepackage{bigfoot}
\DeclareNewFootnote[para]{default}
\MakePerPage{footnotedefault}

If you use it with you example you will perhaps see that the numbers
still aren't correct. The footnote counter is reset, but not at the
top of the page. And in the log-file there is a "label has changed
message".

This can happen when a footnote falls near the page boundary and
change the page at each run. In your example with lots of footnotes
in one paragraph it happens easily, in a normal text it shouldn't
happen often.
