Thanks for reporting.

I can not reproduce this behavior using Linux Mint 14 x64 with LibreOffice
Is it possible to retest using a more recent version (http://www.libreoffice.org/download)

If still reproducible, is it possible to reset your user profile (https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile#Resetting_the_user_profile), and last but not least ... if even an user profile reset doesn't help: can you please provide a screenshot of this behavior?

Thanks in advance for retesting,

Hi Jorend,

After this initial issue, Libreoffice worked faultlessly.

Issue can now be closed please.

Kind regards

I reproduced this issue with the installation of:
LibreOfficeDev alpha2, 
Build ID: 24f0a5815f581dd9a7f09d30213a379edee6e9ac
Win 7 X86.

The same behabiour exists in version

The last dialog of the installation process goes to the far top-left of screen.

I change this bug to NEW. If I should file a new bug and keep this bug as WORKSFORME, please tell.

** Please read this message in its entirety before responding **

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 on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (5.0.4 or later)

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System

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)


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

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=libreoffice-qa

Thank you for your help!
