Why is LibreOffice displaying the menu bars improperly?

For quite some time now, my installation of LibreOffice has some sort of viewport error:

Weird LibreOffice display bug

The top menu bar is not displayed at all whereas the ones below (incl. the icons for New, Open, Save, etc) are visible. However, they are not of great use either as the mouse pointer is not aligned with the selected icon on hover. When I hover over or click the "Bold"-icon, for instance, the print preview above is selected.

Moreover, the bottom bar is only half visible and on the left and right side, the window does not seem to fit within its bounds either. All of this happens in any window mode (maximized as well as partial mode). I have tried to reinstall/repair LibreOffice, but nothing changed. Any help is highly appreciated!

Hello - Try disabling 'Use OpenGL'. From menu Tools->Options then under LibreOffice->View.
