Open the help of LibreOffice.
Search the term "nom de la feuille" (with the quotes) or other term with space and quotes in the search tab.
Libreoffice run in an infinite loop. Only a Libreoffice kill command stop this loop.
It is critical because data could be lost.
All works fine without the quotes.
LO should answer "not found" or the name of the page that contained the terms without the quoted.
Yes, the quotes are not needed but the looping behaviour is a bug.
Thank you very much for this bug report !
I reproduce the infinite loop with LO 5.4.1 from Ubuntu PPA and with current master built at home under Ubuntu 16.04 x86-64.
Indeed, as the only way to regain control on the program, is to kill it, not saved changes will be lost. So possible data loss -> critical.
Best regards. JBF

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!
The Help module works for me now with my browser Firefox, but always offline.
So now, it is not Libreoffice (6.1.6) that is managing the help.
So this issue became invalid for me.
