Hi. I've been using MYSQL with the Java connector on LO Base 6.1.6 with success for quite a while. Everything very stable. Installed LO 6.2.5 today and BASE seems to work OK except with form filters. When I try to search a field using a form filter, the filter navigator popup becomes grey and freezes. My form has sub forms. Does anyone have a suggestion on how to solve this problem? Thanks!

As I was unable to solve the problem, I uninstalled LO 6.2.5 and reinstalled 6.1.6. Everything worked perfectly immediately so there is a bug somewhere. Hopefully someone will have a solution though as I would like to run LO 6.2+ if possible.

This seems to be the bug that has already been reported HERE, but it doesn't look like any fix has been forthcoming. I would think it has been affecting a lot of users!

You might want to revert back to version LO Base 6.1.6 - see my comment above. It would be nice if this regression were to be fixed asap.

The latest posts in the BUG REPORT say this bug has been fixed in LO Base 6.3 and 6.4. Please confirm or otherwise if/when appropriate.

Thanks for the update. I had already reverted to 6.1.6 which immediately solved the problem. Hopefully the bug will be fixed soon.

Thanks Frofa. Since stability is important for me, I'd rather not use LO 6.3 at the present time. Do you think the bug fix will be incorporated in any future LO 6.2 versions, or only in LO 6.3+??
