In my installation of FileLocator Lite (Build 825 on a Windows 7 system) I found that .odt files were no longer found by supplying a (matching) filename prefix and a (matching) content search term when "Office/PDF documents" is checked under "Enhanced Document Searching" in "Options".

The only recent change to the system, apart from regular Windows updates, was a recent update to LibreOffice. Could that indeed cause problems, and how can I solve them?

FileLocator Lite uses ODT IFilters that should be installed by LibreOffice. If the LibreOffice update did not install or removed the IFilters then the content search would stop working.

A quick search on Google for 'LibreOffice IFilter' appears to indicate that this is a common problem with LibreOffice.
