Double menubar in Writer

Linux mint Cinnamon = 19.2 or Ubuntu 19.10
Clean install
LibreOffice = ..

Open LibreOffice
Open new writer-document
Insert object = formula => formula-application opens
     - A double menubar is visible (one from the writer, one from the formula-app
       (no problem sofar)
     - Either enter a formula or none
     - Close the formula-app by clicking outside the formula-panel
=> Writer has a double menubar (I you repeat this operation even a third one is possible)
Close the writer-document => double menubar still present in the general overview
Start new writer-document => double menubar
One has to close LO to get rid of this.

Idle lower menubar
Comment 3 Bernard Decock 2019-11-04 10:30:28 UTC
Well I think I found the culprit. 

Clean install in a VM with version Everything works fine. Then after installing the extension LanguageTool and restarting LO, I can reproduce this error. Bug related to LO or LanguageTool?
Comment 4 Bernard Decock 2019-11-04 10:48:31 UTC
Install LanguageTool => Bug happens
Disable or remove LanguageTool => Ok
Comment 5 Xisco Faulí 2019-11-05 11:43:03 UTC
I believe this might be a duplicate of bug 124391.
Please, try again with LibreOffice

Using a fresh install of LO gives the same result

Install LanguageTool
Open writer -> insert formula
After inserting => double menubar (lower menubar is always idle)

Hi Samuel, since you fixed bug 124391, could you please try to reproduce this issue ? I can't reproduce it here...
Comment 9 Stanislaus J. Pinasthika 2019-11-29 01:46:47 UTC
Yes, maybe the problem related with the LanguageTools. Try to reproduce with

Comment 10 Bernard Decock 2019-11-29 17:12:44 UTC
Well, It starts to happen as soon as you try to insert an equation (Math) in a Writer-document.
