Writer is crashing quite often, I have auto-save on but I lose any work since the last one. I think it is always related to editing tables.

I am using Version: Build ID: 420m0(Build:2) English Ubuntu 33bit 14.04 MATE English

I think this is related to having Calc open as well. It's a serious problem, it's making LibreOffice very nearly unusable.

I've upgraded to Ubuntu 15.10 MATE and there are no problems.

I'll take my only chance: upgrade to 4.3.5 RC2 by using LO PPA ( ):

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa; sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get distro-upgrade

I have upgraded as you suggest, although the second command should be:

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Office Writer and Calc are still crashing though. It happens less often and is more likely to when both are open together.

Oh, right. I don't use §apt-get§ so I had forgotten how that parameter was meant to be written and I didn't check.
