LibreOffice in fullscreen mode
In Mac OS fullscreen mode (Mac OS X > 10.7), menubar will disappear (correctly) but screen will not be resized to hide the withe ribbon. Look at Safari, Mail or some other Apple application for the correct behavior.
Switch to e.g. https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/libreoffice-40-osx/ under LO > Preferences > Personalization to better view the top white bar which should not be there.
I think we should just remove the current hack to "support" full-screen mode from the code. As I tried to say many times in that other bug report about it, it is a somewhat barebones hack and not at all well thought out and/or tested, and the interaction with LO's own full-screen concept is unclear. Anyway, if it doesn't work, don't try to use it.
@Foss: What does Firefox have to do with this? I don't use Firefox on OS X.
Confirmed in LibreOffice (Dev) 4.4.0 alpha1 under Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) x86-64

This bug still exists in LO in further releases. Even in 18.104.22.168
It is strongly necessary to kill or something like that.

The problem seems to be specific for users under 10.10
10.8.5 reproduces this bug everywhere, even today's latest dev-version.

Tested with: Mac OS X El Capitan 10.11.4 (15E2066) with LibreOffice Version: 126.96.36.199

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).

My car has something that don't work well at the brakes... OK, remove the brakes: problem solved ;-P
Adriano: Can we expect a fix from you then?
If I had the skill in order to do it, I wouldn't ask others to do it.

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

This bug still exists in LO 5.4.3002 on macOS 10.11.6, even it's behavior is a little changed. The menubar now appears replaced from a black bar instead from a withe bar, but document didn't use entry screen like before. The correct behavior for OS X (now macOS) fullscreen mode, is that the content of document windows covers entry screen, even the menubar. There will be 20-30 pixel more space in height, nothing really indispensable... but the bug is still there.
And I noticed another strange behavior related to macOS fullscreen mode (don't know if it need to open another bug report): in fullscreen mode, if I close the opened document, LibreOffice hold in fullscreen mode with a blackscreen, and the only thing I can do, is to open a new document to exit fullscreen mode, or quit LibreOffice. The correct behavior is that LibreOffice exits from fullscreen mode if the fullscreen document will be closed.
Please note that there are two different "full-screen" modes: The traditional cross-platform LibreOffice one (View > Full Screen), and the system one (the green roundel in the left end of the title bar of a window. See comment #2. I have no reason to change my opinion.
When commenting here, please make sure which full-screen mode you are talking about.
If I simply remove the broken "support" for system full-screen mode, will people scream?

In the latest versions of LibreOffice, it was replaced from system one. LibreOffice "full-screen" mode is still available by doble clicking on the document title bar or option-clicking "the green roundel in the left...". So, as you can see, I'm aware form what I'm talking. But this is not the point.
I'm aware that's not a stopping issue too, but behavior is still there and not OS coherent.
And one more thing: I think that the lake of full-screen exit (systems one) after document closure, is a noisier bug than the wrong document resizing.

I think none will scream, but it's not a serious way to respond to people that spend their time to give a contribution to make LO better (in this case only for OS coherence). Independently how little the contribution are.
Congratulations, you have managed to confuse the issue with a third kind of "full-screen mode".
The two modes I was talking about was LO's own one, View > Enter Full Screen, and the system one (click on the green roundel without Option).
Double-clicking the title bar is a third thing... it would be called "Maximising", not "full-screen", I think. (And apparently Option-clicking the green roundel does the same as double-clicking.)
Er, just View > Full Screen, not "Enter Full Screen", sorry.

macOS split view with LibreOffice (left) and NeoOffice (right)

OK, you are true. Now the two things have different behavior... today morning I tried LO Full Screen and get OS fullscreen mode. Can't explain how it's possible, and can't repeat the behavior again... maybe I'm wrong, but I don't believe so.
In any case, the macOS fullscreen mode, enables another mode called split view, that works with LO (with the same little bug from holding an unused space in place from menubar), so it's not a useless duplicate from LO fullscreen.
I attach a side-by-side screenshot from a split view mode with LibreOffice on the left and NeoOffice on the right.
Still present (now black bar) and this was also the case in OOo

Well, why wouldn't it still be present? Do you see any comment claiming any fix would have been committed?

Nope, just doing some QA work on mac bugs trying to clean up the bug tracker of duplicates, so thought I'd just update the status on this so other's don't need to test
*** Bug 97402 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Ah ok, good! Sorry for over-reacting.
That's strange, admin do you know where my comments went? I wrote a couple years ago and also started this issue, and no sign of my comments anywhere.
Nvm found it, it was in 97402.
Suggested fix in https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/54760/ .
The fix still leaves some minor ugliness in the full-screen support. But the resources (time) available to work on this crack are limited. The alternative would be to simply not participate in the system full-screen mode at all, https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/48796/ . So don't tempt me.
Should be fixed now when LibreOffice doesn't participate in the system full-screen mode any longer.
Getting rid of a feature is the new way to fix things in the Open Source world now ? (See Gnome devs.)
A feature that ALL MacOS Apps have.
Ever thought to ask Apple for some help ?
Tor, your efforts on this project are appreciated by millions worldwide so please don't take this as a complaint as much as it is a suggestion.
I use LO on macOS exclusively for all word processing and spreadsheets. The irritation of having a black screen when closing a document that was in system full screen mode was far less than the irritation that I experience not being able to take my documents into system full screen mode. System FS allows you to swipe through multiple docs with gestures which is so much more time saving than having to go down to the task bar and change between docs or swipe up and then select the right one. I would gladly accept the black screen issue over not having the functionality at all. Please, please, please bring it back, broken or not.

For me, it is fixed in version 6.1.5
In the View menu, I select Full Screen.
But it does not always behave the same, for reasons unknown. Sometimes, a floating Full Screen box appears. Sometime not. If it does, you can drag it over the regular menu bar if you want that hidden. But then, the menu bar becomes visible.
So, it's a bit of a hit and miss, but it works way better than before.
