Screenshot, showing the potential bug in windowsxp32bit
If I try to create a math-formula in Libre Office Calc (3.5rc03)then there is no input bar (input mask) where to put the code in.
I got this bug in ubuntu11.10(64bit) and windowsXP(32bit)
As you can see in the attached screenshot.
Browser: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:10.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/10.0.1
I confirm this behaviour with Math and insert-formula in Writer with Windows7
To get rid of this bug, look for a folder called libreoffice. Located in WindowsXP somewhere in "Documents and Settings". When you found it, make a backup of it somewhere else and delete it. Usually you can find this folder by looking in Libreoffice: Extras -> Options --> Path
Same works with ubuntu11.10(64bit).
Seems there are some configuration-files who doesnt work with the new installation.
I can confirm this behaviour on Ubuntu 10.10-2 (32bits).
It wont freezes, just do anything but editing formulas. It opens as usual, menu works and closes fine, but the editing panel wont show up.
No matter if you call it from menu, command line or other LibreOffice component, it's always the same.
Installed 3.5 version after uninstalling v3.4.5 and running "apt-get autoclean" and "apt-get purge".
Java and Python both up to date.

Uninstalling LibreOffice, removing all files in "C:\Program Files\LibreOffice*" and removing all LibreOffice files in "C:\Users", followed by reinstalling LibreOffice resulted in a presnt and functioning Commands Windows with formulas.
I suspect that a possible cause is the absence of a menu option to show/hide the commands window.
It is possible to undock the command window and once undocked, it is possible to close the window. There seems to be no possibilty to open it again.
See bug 46071 for instructions on how to resolve this issue.
