Description sdc.blanco 2020-01-02 18:48:22 UTC
1.  Any document, right-click, Paragraph, Edit Style (which opens Paragraph Style dialog box)
2. Click on Help button twice

Actual Result:  

First time, opens help page for the tab.  
Second time, opens the generic introduction page:  
https://help.libreoffice.org/6.5/en-US/text/swriter/main0000.html?System=WIN&DbPAR=WRITER

Expected Result:  Always opens the relevant help page for the relevant tab.

Additional information:

1.  Same effect for different tabs in the Paragraph Style dialog
2.  Have not tested with other dialog boxes
3.  Works correctly with 6.3.4.2

Comment 5 Xisco Faulí 2020-01-20 15:23:39 UTC
It worked fine until https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=b78edeca8631a5e3b888d6fb357fe9125a491c41. After this commit, the main writer help page was displayed. Later on, it was fixed in https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=34e83dd95260d534464ff9a61eddefdde136013c when the help page is displayed for the first time, but not for the second time.
