The separator line between footnote and the main body text may no longer be thinner than 0.25pt (which is quite thick).
* Format > Page > Footnote.
* Under Separator Line, set Thickness to 0.10.
* Hit Tab. It instantly resets to 0.25pt.
Similar to #56559 but for footnote separators, instead of column separators.

I don't get the "no longer" part: in LibO 3.3 (inherited from OO.o), it could be at a minimum 0 or 0.5 pts. In 3.4, it became more granular with 0.25 pts allowed.
Sorry typo by me. I don't know about the history of this feature. Rather, I just think that 0.25pt is quite thick, especially when most other borders default to 0.05.
The minimum height of 0.05pt for borders is quite likely a mistake that we hope to correct, but the minimum height should be set to a reasonable minimum when it gets printed.
So i checked MS Word and there separator is larger than 0.25pt and is a character and not a border line, which you can adjust its thickness. So i'd say that a minimum of 0.25pt sounds good, but not allowing numbers below 0.25pt will cause compatibility problems with older OOo documents which allowed a minimum value of 0.00pt.

Bug 36722 - it is solved by "line style: None".
Created attachment 128032 [details]

Close but unfortunately not as can be seen with attachment 128032 [details], by importing it and it shows 0.25pt when i should say 0.00pt.
This is a simple fix.
Yousuf Philips committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
tdf#102284 Allow footnote separator thickness of 0pt
It will be available in 5.3.0.
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More
information about daily builds can be found at:
