When i click the dmg for version 5.2.3_MacOS_x86-64.dmg the verification is slow, then nothing happens. The computer slows way down, even after i cancel. Restart is necessary. I tried loading an older version but same problem occurs. What to do?
Did you retrieve LO from TDF official website https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/ ?
Which MacOs version do you use? (just to be sure have you rebooted your Macos)
Does it happen with other softwares?
Please don't respond from your mailer but from https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=104985#
Response received in private email:
I'm on version 10.10.5
I did download from the official site. I just re-downloaded it and again, the verification completes, then...nothing, other than the fan coming on, the computer slows down. Even after cancelling (doesn't matter how long i wait), the computer is barely operable. After restart, it's back to normal.
Since I don't have more questions, I'll put it back to UNCONFIRMED.
Alex: thought you might have some idea for this one.
At this point, as i have no access to my ods files, and re-downloading LO isn't resolving the issue, i'm not sure what else to do but find a different program. Perplexing and frustrating. Any suggestions?
Has LO ever worked on your machine or is it recent it doesn't work?
If it's recent, did you change anything in software (MacOs upgrade, install some softs, drivers, fonts, ...) or in hardware (new graphic card for example).
Do you reproduce for other softwares (eg: Firefox)?
Just to be sure, did you download and try to open dmg file from your local hardisk and not from network share?
It worked until i got the update, replaced the old with the new version. The only update recently is Adobe flash player. I did open the dmg from the hardisk. I don't understand what's meant by "reproduce for other softwares". I use Firefox as a browser with add-ons: "https everywhere", "Disconnect" and "Adblockplus". I could disable these and when i can get back to somewhere with the bandwidth, try downloading the dmg again. The odd thing was that i had an old dmg of version 5.0.0 and the same verification failure with subsequent operation problem occurred.

Sorry I wanted to know if you have install pb with other softwares.
It could be interesting you disable the plugins you quoted and download again LO dmg just for the test.
You may also try with Safari.
To be sure, you retrieved the exact file as it should, you can check with http://download.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/stable/5.2.4/mac/x86_64/LibreOffice_5.2.4_MacOS_x86-64.dmg.mirrorlist (MD5, SHA-1 or SHA-256)
For MD5 for example, this link http://news.softpedia.com/news/How-to-Check-MD5-Sum-on-Mac-OS-X-431080.shtml explains how to do this.
This problem seems to be particular to OSX 10.10 and possibly 10.9.5 - it seems that the DMG file gets quarantined by Gatekeeper and an xattr attribute set which prevents the installation from completing.
Almost certainly a duplicate, but finding it is the key...
1) Unset Gatekeeper preferences before installing LO
2) When launching LO for the first time, try using a right mouse button click, and choosing open from the Applications folder.
3) If LO launches successfully, reset the Gatekeeper preferences back to the default.

Thanks! Such a simple fix for an exasperating problem.
