Thanks for your report @fornandakishore and welcome to Trac.

Based on your screenshot I'm assuming you're using the editor in the front end using wp_editor()? I see the styling of the elements in the modal dialog is likely affected by conflicts with the theme styling. Regardless, this shouldn't directly impact the functionalities of the search and suggestions list.

I did a quick test adding the editor in the front end (theme: Twenty Twenty) and I couldn't reproduce any issue. The styling needs to be adjusted a bit but everything works as expected.

See the attached animated GIF.

I'd tend to think there's probably some JavaScript conflict with some plugins or the theme you're using. Can you confirm that the bug still exists with the default theme (Twenty Twenty) activated and all other plugins deactivated?
