Hi, Wilbert:

LibreOffice 5 uses a different window widget control and what they call
"menu integration". It has proven to be buggy in loits of environments,
including Openbox, Mutter and minimal X11 managers (Rat Poison, iwm,
WindowMaker, etc). Until they team fixes that (among other news, like
the Libreoffice cloud access) I highly recommend NOT to use version 5,
but 4 instead.

If your problem is the scrolllbar I recommend you to use the official
themes provided by Ubuntu and derivatives (Lubuntu's Box, Ubuntu's
Light Themes, Xubuntu's Greybird, etc). Also ensure you have installed
the packages libreoffice-gtk and libreoffice-gtk3 to enable full GTK3
