libreoffice (Ubuntu)

Bug Description


1. While looking at this bug report in firefox, Ctrl+A, then Ctrl+C
2. Paste the text in libreoffice writer

Expected results:
Text somehow gets formatted (possibly in a weird way), but it is put into the text document where I can edit it.

Actual results:
Input stops working, the mouseover cursor is "waiting" but waiting never completes. You cannot cancel the paste, but you can save the document (i.e. UI is not frozen) and exit libreoffice properly.

The same action but in a better video (Thanks to Kazam)

Mozaic, thank you for reporting this and helping make Ubuntu better. However, your crash report is missing. Please follow these instructions to have apport report a new bug about your crash that can be dealt with by the automatic retracer. One may execute at the Terminal:
sudo apt-get -y install libreoffice-dbg uno-libs3-dbg ure-dbg && sudo service apport start force_start=1

If you are running the Ubuntu Stable Release you might need to enable apport in /etc/default/apport and restart.

Now reproduce the crash, then open your file manager, navigate to your /var/crash directory and open the crash report you wish to submit.
If this fails you will have to open a terminal and file your report with 'ubuntu-bug /var/crash/_my_crash_report.crash' where _my_crash_report.crash is the crash you would like to report. If you get an error that you aren't allowed to access this report you will have to file it with 'sudo ubuntu-bug /var/crash/_my_crash_report.crash'. Please follow when you file this crash report so the necessary information is provided.

Sorry but, i don't understand.
Yesterday, I follow your instructions and Apport open Firefox to propose to create a new bug, i copy the tittle of this one for the summary, else launchpad propose this one. But don't have any attachement, so i add manually the crash rapport. But you don't want this one
I try today the same operation, Apport open now a new page: but i don't think it's the same. If i could not add an attachement via Apport, i add this manually. The files is follow
