First time I've used this forum, not sure what shows to everyone. Problem is, every time I open LO it immediately quits, and says it does so while trying to restore windows. I get an option of 'restore windows' or 'don't restore windows' but neither helps. I can open a file but can't do anything with it. It then won't quit, so I have to force quit each time. I'm using a Mac.

to clarify, it says it quits but actually doesn't

Than for suggestion of LibreOffice startup always asking reopen windows, but 'preferences' os ghosted out so I can't get to it

Please have a look at → LibreOffice startup always asking reopen windows,
and try the workaround (fdo#39007):

Comment #2:
You can bypass this deleting the Saved Application State for LibreOffice at:
~/Library/Saved\ Application\ State/org.libreoffice.script.savedState/
In a Terminal:
$ rm -fr ~/Library/Saved\ Application\ State/org.libreoffice.script.savedState/

Comment #20:
Remember: the $ is your username and should not be included in the Terminal entry.
Just copy and paste this:
rm -fr ~/Library/Saved\ Application\ State/org.libreoffice.script.savedState/
And RESTART your Mac. It will boot up without the LibreOffice warning.

Comment #35:
Open Finder
Option-click the Go menu
Choose Library from the menu to open the folder in the Finder.
Click on the folder Saved Application State
Delete the file org.libreoffice.script.savedState

My husband found a folder called "saved application state" in the home library, and this contained another Libre Office preference which needed to be deleted

Everything ok again now (after I started thinking I'd have to buy MS Office to access my files again)
