I'm using the LibreOffice flatpak version ( from flathub

Opening the Options window (Tools > Options) takes a long time : much more than the deb package (version 6.1.5) I used to have

Thank you for reporting the bug. To be certain the reported issue is not
related to corruption in the user profile, could you please reset your
Libreoffice profile ( https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile ) and

I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to
'UNCONFIRMED' if the issue is still present

Well, I had just installed LibO from flathub when I find that bug.

LibO flatpak package was never installed before.

Since flatpak versions have their own profile (/home/user/.var/app/org.libreoffice.LibreOffice/config/libreoffice/4/user instead of /home/user/.config/libreoffice/4/user), I'd say it was a brand new profile :)
Comment 3 antistress 2019-06-06 20:19:37 UTC
I also followed the instructions as proposed : I've restarted LibO in safe mode, then I've chosen "Reset to factory settings" from the dialog box (with "Reset settings and user interface modification" & "Reset entire user profile" selected) and tried to open the Options window : the bug is still there.

Thanks !

I tried to measure the delay between alt+f12 and having the Option window displayed on the screen (my system : Debian Sid 64 bits with GNOME-X11) : 5,36 sec

Please launch like this from the command line (replace libreoffice with your flatpak executable) and measure the time:
SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gen libreoffice
SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gtk libreoffice
SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gtk3 libreoffice

Are there differences between the UI plugins?
