The link about user profile is: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile,
BTW usually from my experience is enough changing the name or deleting registrymodifications.xcu in the root the user profile, so not all configurations are lost.

“When noticing strange behavior in LibreOffice the first thing to do is to reset the user profile. To do so, follow these steps:” (Thanks @Charlie.it. This is just a quick links, so I can quickly find this the next time I need it.)

I moved your help into a community wiki answer (you can edit it). Please mark it accepted, so that this question appears as answered.

Sorry, but I don’t understand how can I do to mark accepted.

The user profile is stored in a folder named user whose location can be checked (Libre Office open):

  • Windows: Tools > Options > LibreOffice > Paths
  • Linux: Tools > Options > LibreOffice > Paths
  • Mac OSX: LibreOffice > Preferences > LibreOffice > Paths

Generally the paths are the following:

  • Windows: C: > Users > your user name > AppData > Roaming > LibreOffice > 4 > user
  • Linux: home > your user name > .config > libreoffice > 4 > user
  • Mac OSX: Library > Application Support > LibreOffice > 4 > user

Folders mentioned are normally “hidden” that is not visible unless you provide, in the operating system, the consensus view:

  • Windows: Control Panel > Folder Options > View > Hidden files and folders check Show folders, files and drives hidden > OK
  • Linux: hold down ctrl and H
  • Mac OS X: Hold down the Alt key and select Go in the Finder

Tip for Microsoft Windows: to get straight to the user profile folder, press Win + R, type in %APPDATA%\libreoffice\4\user and press Enter.

The user folder you can delete, rename or move commands with their respective operating systems.
