  • Hate it when they do that , I feel your pain. Perhaps file with Ubuntu, but again, if it is in a ppa it is likely considered experimental. Perhaps message to persone who packaged the .deb

The problem was solved by itself. I installed Libre Office from official Libre Office PPA when problem appeared, but today Ubuntu Software Center found updates (!!!) and updated it to the same version I've already have (

After this, Libre Office shows submenus automatically, no delay...

I guess, installing software from other sources (such as Libre Office PPA) could cause such problems and it is better to wait for official Ubuntu updates.
