Document causing the problem, screenshot illustrating how to reproduce it
Writer freezes when trying to delete few words
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open the doc
2. Select few words as shown in the screenshot
3. press delete
Operating System: Ubuntu
Version: 126.96.36.199 release
I was able to delete 5 pages out of provided document without any problems on 4.2.5 and 4.3.0 on Linux Mint as well as 4.2.3 on Ubuntu 14.04 (which i'm assuming you have). I believe the issue maybe caused by something else, but encourage you to do a system update, as LibreOffice 4.2.4 will be available to you.
If it still persists, try clearing your user profile by follow the instructions at the following link < http://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/903/where-are-the-libreoffice-data-profile-files/ >. Alternatively, if your running an AMD or Nvidia graphics card, attempt to use a different driver. Instructions on how to do so can be found at < http://askubuntu.com/questions/47506/how-do-i-install-additional-drivers >. Please let us know if this solves your issue.
Thanks for the reply.
I was able to reproduce the bug also in LibreOffice 3.5.4
(SMP Debian 3.2.57-3+deb7u2 x86_64).
Note, that the problem happens in a specific place in
the document -- at line 151 shown in the screenshot.
Did you try that?
It is no problem to delete 5 pages elsewere....
Thanks for that. Yes it froze for me on 3.3.0, 4.2.5, and master on Linux Mint when selecting ", расположенного на ." on line 151 and pressing delete. I let master run for 5 minutes before killing it, assuming it might stop. It also froze on Windows 7 with master.
I think it is in relation the "Times New Roman Font" and a direct format applied, changed to other font the issue seems solved for me.
There is a font format over the paragraph format.
Maybe the file was not created with LibreOffice in first instance and weird stuffs remains in the file.
If a character style is applied to the all paragraph text the perhaps would better only use a paragraph style modified properly, this can simplified document maintenance.

The numbering styles WW8Num1 to WW8Num4 show that this document was created under MS-Word in .doc or .docx format and converted in .odt

I remove bug from mab4.3 list since it's not 4.3.x specific and affects earlier versions as well.
If it's still considered a MAB it should go into the mab4.2 list
(This is an automated message.)
LibreOffice development currently prioritizes bugs with the so called MAB (most annoying bugs) -- as this bug has not run through that process (including writing a short rationale for this bug being a candidate and other who are watching the tracker bug silently approving that rationale etc.) its priority is set to high. Note this is effectively no change in the urgency assigned to this bug, as we are currently not making a difference between high and highest and severity is untouched.
You can find out more about MABs and how the process works by contacting libreoffice qa on irc:
The QA wiki page also gives you hints on how to get in contact with the team (if IRC fails you, your next best choice is the mailing list):

minimal test document
By deleting ", расположенного на ", the text below shifts upward bringing with it the table that is split over two pages. The freeze also happens when placing the cursor in the empty paragraphs before the table and pressing Delete. They have the paragraph style "Table Contents".
The paragraph style "BodyL." has line spacing of 1.5. The paragraph has single line spacing applied as direct formatting.
The text is justified.
For the two empty paragraphs, if they are changed to "Default Style" or line spacing of 1.5 ("Default Style" has been modified to 1.5 anyway) then deleting them no longer becomes a problem.
I have created a minimal document from the original. There is no formatting of line spacing. It is a table split over two pages with an image anchored as character in one cell and justified text in the other cell. Trying to delete an empty paragraph before the table results in a freeze.
