When selecting File/Edit/Insert/etc from top row the line flickers momentarily.

Flicker is not present with OpenGL rendering, but quite noticeable with hardware acceleration, or with CPU only rendering.
This was OK with 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199 but goes bad for 188.8.131.52
Needs Windows bibisect
@Michael, Khaled, * -- for 184.108.40.206+ we've moved font layout more completely to DirectWrite but is that now causing a buffering issue that shows up as flicker in the menus?
https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=104242#c12 and resulting shift to DirectWrite from GDI.
No idea, some old bug in the DirectWrite code or some such, this code have been there for a long time no changes made to it in this release. Nothing related to HarfBuzz.

black box when maximizing
Related to the interface flickering, this also happens
menu bar flickering when changing betwwen menus. Menu items load one after another taking long to display all the options, window resizing takes long with whole interface flickering and black box displaying when maximizing the window.
Not sure if it is the same problem
Windows 10 with Intel HD Graphics 3000 and GeForce GT 525M
Neves had this issue with previus LO versions
Rather seems there is a relationship between bug 106990 and bug 107024, with OpenGL rendering it does not manifest, but with Default HW rendering or CPU only rendering the issues are present.
It has gotten more noticeable at 5.3.2, but closing this for the duplicate.
