A search is presented for a standard model-like Higgs boson decaying to the mu(+)mu(-) or e(+)e(-) final states based on proton-proton collisions recorded by the CMS experiment at the CERN LHC. The data correspond to integrated luminosities of 5.0 fb(-1) at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV and 19.7 fb(-1) at 8 TeV for the mu(+)mu(-) search, and of 19.7 fb(-1) at 8 TeV for the e(+)e(-) search. Upper limits on the production cross section times branching fraction at the 95% confidence level are reported for Higgs boson masses in the range from 120 to 150 GeV. For a Higgs boson with a mass of 125 GeV decaying to mu(+)mu(-), the observed (expected) upper limit on the production rate is found to be 7.4 (6.5(-1.9)(+2.8)) times the standard model value. This corresponds to an upper limit on the branching fraction of 0.0016. Similarly, for e(+)e(-), an upper limit of 0.0019 is placed on the branching fraction, which is approximate to 3.7 x 10(5) times the standard model value. These results, t...ogether with recent evidence of the 125 GeV boson coupling to tau-leptons with a larger branching fraction consistent with the standard model, confirm that the leptonic couplings of the new boson are not flavour-universal.
