Sounds like it is "disallowing" your search because of the word "OR" is in the term.

I'd try:
"Instant search" OR "Active Filter"

In fact, I'm trying that now...

...results in. Complained about "OR" being too common, gave me 200 results.

So--- why does the SEARCH EXAMPLE say:
Quote:
vacation london OR paris NOT alaska
when that isn't acceptable according to the search results page?
 
Putting that exact text into search has the forum report:
Quote:
The following words are either very common, too long, or too short and were not included in your search: or not

Putting phrases within quotes in this forum's search engine has never worked.

Also, two or more search terms seem to be treated as OR, not AND, by the engine.

This makes it very frustrating to use.

I'm just laughing at the forum software's response to its own example.
