Description MartR 2016-05-14 10:47:42 UTC
Go to
Tools > Options > LibreOffice > Personalisation > Select Theme > search for some random theme, select one, click ok.

The status text "Applying theme" shows, but then LibreOffice quickly and reliably crashes. With some themes (Firefox Personas), the application of a different theme works, but it seems, that with most themes/personas, the crash is very reliable.

This happens since LibreOffice versions 5.0.0 through to 5.1.x, and still happens with 5.0.6.

Both in Windows (32-bit) and Linux (Knoppix).

You could get a backtrace of the crash either on Win or Linux:

I believe I got the same bug with 5.3 alpha1 / Windows 7.
I wend to Tools -> Options...; LibreOfficeDev -> Personalization, clicked Own Theme; in Select Firefox Theme dialog I clicked Color category, and selected the first entry (Best Color Swirl).

Got a crash with this crash report:

On second try it was working though, so the reproduction might not be reliable.

The Firefox themes integration has been reworked in https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/61449/ and this issue was likely solved too. It will be available in 6.2 (or nightly builds).
