Internal WordPress Plug-in Search dont show relevant results

Today, I used the integrated plug-in search feature in WordPress to look for two plug-ins. As an example, I will use 'Elementor.' When you type 'Elementor' into the search field, you only find the plug-in on page 5. This is the case with other plug-ins as well. It can be quite frustrating when you enter the exact name of a plug-in and then have to sift through 100 results before you find it. This was not the case before.
Cheers Chris

@chris1407 Chris1407, I tried reproducing the issue using WordPress 6.5 and 6.5.3, no other plugins activated, and using the Twenty Twenty Four theme, but this seems to be working well for me.

Have you tried disabling any other third-party plugin or switching to the default theme to test if something is affecting the search feature, like a conflict?

You are right, i tried it in the us version and it works. But in the german & italian and perhaps other not us versions, it dont works anymore:
