    When's the last time you upgraded the software on your system? They recently released an update that should have fixed at least some of this behavior.

    Re: Should I upgrade to 12.10 Quantal Quetzal?

    I'm assuming that by "Ubuntu" you mean the standard Ubuntu with Unity. If that's right, then, if you use LibreOffice regularly, I would not upgrade to 12.10. LibreOffice is currently buggy in 12.10,...

    The global menubar in LibreOffice is quite broken in 12.10 right now (and has been since release... and was before release, too).
