This is due to the following:
http://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-16275 http://developer.atlassian.com/jira/browse/LIVESEARCH-32 http://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-5142 http://developer.atlassian.com/jira/browse/LIVESEARCH-33
In short, the livesearch macro now defaults to adding an asterisk (\*) at the end of the query. Adding the asterisk is supposed to increase the number of results. Instead, the search index often doesn't behave as expected and returns less or no results for queries that end with an asterisk.
Workaround: Remove the asterisk from the search query and try again. You'll get the results that you are used to.
