Attatched is a screenshot of the window that will not go away.

Problem description: When I open my LibreOffice, a pop-up window asks if I would like to restore my previous windows. I try clicking both options, and they blink as if I have successfully clicked them, but the window stays open. I am unable to get rid of this window no matter what I do, and then the program will not let me quit normally, I have to force quit. 

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open LibreOffice
2. Restore Windows window opens automatically
3. ....

Current behavior:

Expected behavior:
I expect the program to respond when I click "Do not Restore" or "Restore", and also to close with the normal Command+Q option instead of making me force quit. 
Operating System: Mac OS X
Version: rc

Thank you very much for your bug report!

This is a known problem; the main bug report for it is bug 39007 - “Persistent ‘Restore Windows’ dialog won’t disappear, disables key functionality”, at

Please see that bug report for details, including some suggestions how to solve the problem, at least for some time (see comments no. 2, 6, and 20 there).
Basically, you need to delete the file
from the folder
    ~/Library/Saved Application State/
(~ is your user/home folder) and then to reboot your Mac.

I hope that our developers will fix this issue soon and for good, but it seems
it is not easy to fix, it is some kind of terrible “misunderstanding” between
LibreOffice and MacOS X >= 10.7.

By the way: if you are still using LibreOffice, you might consider to update to the current release (, which includes many useful bug fixes ...

Thank you again!
