OS : Windows 7 Pro and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

If the Borders icon is added to a toolbar -- via Customize -> Toolbars -> Add...
Category Format, Commands Borders -- when activating it, the click command opens a small blank Title Bar, no box frame, no box, no contents (Win7)... whereas on Ubuntu, it opens a full screen blank box.

The Borders UI and functionality can be activated via the LO menu system -> Format -> Paragraph -> Borders tab.

This situation did not occur on LO.3.5, 3.6.6, nor 3.6.7.
I upgraded directly from there to LO. on both OS, 'problem' started.
I upgraded yesterday to LO. on both OS, 'problem' still there.

Thinking I may have conflicting ancillary files or registry settings from LO.3, I uninstalled LibreOffice from both OS, and manually cleaned any leftovers, including user profiles. 
Gave the machine a chance to a cold reboot, and myself a beer, same temperature.
A clean install of LO. did not correct the 'problem'.
What gives?
I resolved my quandary by setting a shortcut key to the Format Borders command.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for your work, dudettes and dudes.

I guess you are using Writer.
I reproduce the problem with LibreOffice 4.1.4 under Ubuntu 13.10 x86-64.
It work as expected in version 4.0.6
In version I do not find the command Border in the list for Category Format.

Best regards. JBF

As it works in LO 4.0.6, I changed the summary accordingly.

Not reproducible for me with LO 4.1.6 under Ubuntu 14.04 x86-64.

Closing as WorksForMe because there is no fix identified. Please feel free to reopen if you still encounter the problem.

Best regards. JBF

Fixed in Bug 73159 - UI: clicking the 'Add Border' button leads to a void menu/window.
