When I click Help within Writer, it opens Firefox on a Help page which cannot be used because there are no links.
Provide a screenshot or at least a link to the page you ended up at.

I expected a hyperlink to Help but the expected location is inactive.
Bruce, did you install built-in help?
The download link is "Help for offline use" : http://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-still/
Thanks for your advice about the Offline Help.
So we can close this report. Please reopen & mark UNCONFIRMED if problem persists after installing offline help.
The described problem is about online help: https://help.libreoffice.org/Main_Page
Please, could you explain, what does not work?
Set status to NEEDINFO. Please set it back to UNCONFIRMED once you have provided requested informations. Thank you for your understanding.
Best regards. JBF

The issue is that the menu Help > LibreOffice Help does not start the help page of the current module (Writer, Calc, etc.) but the help on the help. It is inconsistent with the shortcut key F1 behavior which opens the help for the current module.
This problem is the same for the local built-i help and the web based help system. In the web based help system, you do not have a path to find the main help page (https://help.libreoffice.org/Main_Page).
Summary adapted and status set to NEW.
Best regards. JBF

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 (5.0.5 or 5.1.2 https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
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
If 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

Guess this ticket has been fixed, Olivier?
The issue is still valid, as described by JBF in comment#8 .
I'm closing this bug with WORKSFORME, after checking the master build and the online help.
