Steps to reproduce:
1. Start LibreOffice, select option to create new text document
2. Switch to fullscreen (cmd-shift-J)
3. Close document (cmd-w)
Window disappears, as does the OS X menu bar the top of the screen. There is no visible way to continue interacting with LibreOffice at this point.
LibreOffice switches out of fullscreen mode after fullscreen window closes. Menu bar shows up with LibreOffice and File entries in it.
Platform (if different from the browser):
Browser: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_8_0) AppleWebKit/537.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/21.0.1180.57 Safari/537.1
Confirming on Mac OSX 10.8 (Mountain Lion) that the Application menu bar disappears from the top of the screen.
This does not completely prevent the user from interacting with LibreOffice, the application icon still apppears in the Dock and the application's own toolbar icons are still functional, but it is a problem nonetheless, e.g. there is no longer any obvious way to access the extension manager or many of the functions that are only available via the menu system.
I have noticed that the problem occurs with any document type that is created subsequent to the first initial creation, full screen setting then closing of that document.
This might be a duplicate of a previously reported problem, I will check.
It is interesting to note that the Dock also disappears from view. In fact, both the Dock and Application Menu are still present, but hidden. I accidentally and briefly managed to get the Application menu to appear again for a few seconds, then it promptly disappeared.
@Thorsten : one for you ?
Related in any way to Tor's attempts to get fullscreen support working ?
@Tor, Thorsten : any idea ?

> @Tor, Thorsten : any idea ?
Entirely possible. So this is 10.8-only?
My patches to attempt to support "real" (in the sense of Mac OS X 10.7 and later) full-screen mode are not included in the code-base, so not related.
Unfortunately cannot commit time to this currently, thus freeing the bug for other takers.

LO 4.2 has problem too )-:
Looks fixed to me.
Tested using Mac OSX 10.9 with LibreOffice Version: 126.96.36.199.beta2
Build ID: 1a27be92e320f97c20d581a69ef1c8b99ea9885d
Please verify with this version (http://www.libreoffice.org/download/pre-releases/) and mark as VERIFIED FIXED
Probably fixed by commit: http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=986644335c3f9e99ec3c6bebc0b75cca0acdf79b

> LO 4.2 has problem too )-:
No, this is a different issue :). Please read the Description of this bug (for steps). The problem with grey-background is when you use the full-screen feature of Mac OSX (click at full-screen button at top right corner) (not from LibreOffice by going to cmd-shift-J).
Ow dangit, my bad. Still reproducible, even with this full-screen option. Sorry for the noise
I can confirm that this bug also affects LibreOffice 4.1.x under Linux. Affected versions tested:
LO 188.8.131.52 under 64bit RHEL6
LO 184.108.40.206 under 32bit Fedora17
I can also confirm that it appears to be fixed in the 4.2.x version I tested:
LO 220.127.116.11 under 32bit Fedora17
And doesn't appear to affect versions < 4.1.x:
LO 18.104.22.168 under 32bit Fedora17
If you're wondering, I'm following the same steps, substituting the hotkey: ctrl-shift-j for cmd-shift-j. I also get the same behavior using View->Full Screen.
I'm terribly sorry! I apparently didn't read the original post well enough.
I appear to be experiencing Bug 66864, which will be fixed in 4.1.5/4.2.0. Please ignore my previous comment. Sorry for any confusion.
FWIW, the dock also disappears until you click on the bottom of the screen.
Still present in master Version: 22.214.171.124.alpha0+

Same bug observed with 5.0.4 on Debian.
Tested with: Mac OS X El Capitan 10.11.4 (15E2066) with LibreOffice Version: 188.8.131.52
Build ID: d3bf12ecb743fc0d20e0be0c58ca359301eb705f

It seems using the native OSX full-screen behaviour (which now puts the zoomed in window in it's own space), is broken. The central issue is how LO handles Spaces on OSX.
Workaround: Double click on the window's title bar to maximise the window (like 'full screen' in earlier OSX versions).
Related, possibly duplicated, issues ~
Missing menu bar: #53282, #76476, #96134, #97402, #97709.
Extra blank screen: (black- was grey) #72490, #83378, #96134.
General: #85259, #95362.
It has been known for long that the attempt to support real macOS full-screen mode in LO is broken. I don't remember why it has not been removed. Probably because of the unsurprising "no, you must fix it ASAP instead" comments from the peanut gallery?

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

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!
Still present, and this issue was also present in 3.3, so inherited
Comment #22 raises a valid point: macOS has native full screen functionality as well, it may be worth working on that instead of the LO built in functionality? Having two options is just confusing to users
Microsoft Office uses the native macOS full screen capability for their full screen menu option. I assume they had similar built in functionality before macOS introduced the native functionality.

Note that LibreOffice (master and 6.1 branches) now oesn't participate in the system full-screen mode at all. But this problem still is present, so it wasn't related to the *system* full-screen mode as such, but to LibreOffice's way to hide the menu bar in its own full-screen mode, or something.
I think it would be acceptable to just make the LibreOffice's own full-screen mode (which is not related to the system full-screen mode) *not* hide the menu bar at all, and thus work around this issue. But possibly that will then break slide shows in Impress, as they likely use the same LO functionality to hide the menu bar.
Suggested fix at https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/56524/ . (I did not have to do what I suggested in the previous comment.)
Tor Lillqvist committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
tdf#53282: Leave (our own) full-screen mode when the AquaSalFrame is dying
It will be available in 6.2.0.
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More
information about daily builds can be found at:
Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.
