In versions 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52
In Format Page, I can select a #11 or #12 envelope. But when I select File Print, it gets changed either to a #10 envelope or sometimes to Letter size paper. If I try to define a User (custom) size, it always gets changed to some predefined size (e.g., 6x9 gets changed to C5) when I try to print.
Identical results with HP 6500 and Canon MF217w.
In Microsoft Word Starter 2010 I can create identical documents and print with no problem at all. I simply have to select the proper printer and insert the envelope. No requirement to mess with any printer settings.
TESTING with Ubuntu 14.04 +

- Open new document in Writer
- Format -> Page -> Page -> Paper Format -> Format -> #11 Envelope
- Click "OK"
(Going back to Format -> Page and checking the set value, #11 Envelope remains selected)
> But when I select File

- File -> Print (opens dialog)
CONFIRMED: The text at the top of the Preview area says "4.13 in (#10 Envelope)"

I should note that this text remains constant regardless of which printer I've selected, or if I've selected "Print to File".
A workaround is, in the Print dialog, to select another printer, and select the correct printer again.
This workaround, as easy as it may look, is hard for a person who cannot hand-write addresses anymore, barely use the mouse, and whose computer literacy and short term memory are very low.

Workaround didn't work. I selected the PDF "printer" and it did change to a #11 envelope. But when I go back to the correct printer it changes right back to letter size (8-1/2 x 11).
I have added a #11 envelope to the list of page sizes in the properties of the printer itself (I did not even have to do this in order to print property with Microsoft Word) but Libre still refuses to recognize it.
Believe me, I'm no fan of Word... but it looks like I'll have to rely on it for sizes that Libre is prejudiced against.
This bug is apparent when using LibreOffice under Mac OS but seems to work alright when using LibreOffice under Ubuntu. The printer in question is a HP-Photosmart-7520 series used wirelessly i.e. via the WiFi.
I have downloaded and installed the latest version of LibreOffice on the Mac and the bug is still there.
Ubuntu automatically ensures that LibreOffice is up-to-date, its current version being 22.214.171.124.
What I am trying to do it print a file to photo paper on the printer. It works using LibreOffice under Ubuntu but, on the Mac, the printer defaults to selecting A4 paper from the A4 paper tray and fails to select the photo paper in the photo tray.

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!
Repro in LO 5.0.6 and LO 6.2+ in Windows 7 for real physical printers. So I set to All.
No repro for virtual printers.
Title was too generic, let's focus on what's written, envelopes. Further tests are welcome.
Please explain why Microsoft Word doesn't have those #11 and #12 envelopes. Can it be that printers don't support those sizes?
And that it's not about printing but about supporting proper sizes?
