browser search when using the cyrillic alphabet

Hello together,

Ive encountered a problem when searching in the browser using the cyrilic script. Whenever the cyrillic word is modified somehow (eg by using bold or italic), the browser search won't find that word anymore. This turns out to be quite annoying for me, because I like to put the vowel which is stressed in bold.

For example: If I search for "будущее" (which means future in English) it will find the corresponding note only if "будущее" is not modified in any fashion. So for example if the note contains "будущее"und the first "у" is bold, then the browser search will not find the note anymore. I will attach some screenshots for you to take a look at.

Has anybody any idea how to prevent this?

    Anki can only ignore formatting in the sort field:
