Screenshot of this problem -- empty unusable panel

Just tried to make "Styles" window look as a window and not as attachment to sidebar. So i undocked the sidebar and removed all category switch buttons. And then i closed this floating window...and i am not able to access Styles window anymore. Moreover, sidebar become COMPLETELY nonfunctional, because now i cannot add buttons back because context menu cannot be used.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open "Styles" "window" by pressing F11 or selecting Styles -> Manage styles
2. Undock the sidebar panel
3. Remove all category buttons one by one moving from the top of the list to the bottom.
4. Close floating window.
5. Try to open "Styles" window again.

Operating system: Microsoft Windows 7 (WinNT 6.1.7601)
UAC status: Disabled

I don't understand this step. I can't remove a button.

Dear Herman Tafintsev,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
