It's been my experience that bugs tickled only by one person are very
difficult to replicate without a highly detailed explanation of every
keystroke and mouse movement and sometimes even the exact data being
used. The best way to figure out what's going on is for someone with
the necessary skills to examine the computer with the problem.
As an example I was using an application (sflphone) that kept crashing
on ubuntu. The developer was unable to replicate the problem. I
granted him an account and he was kind enough to login and poke around.
In a short time he had determined that there was a problem with the
system libraries and his program was tickling a bug in DBUS. I couldn't
tell you why he was unable to replicate it on his own machine, but he
changed his code so that it wouldn't tickle the bug and reported the bug
to the DBUS team who also provided a fix. I would never have been able
to find this on my own, and it's unlikely he would have been able to
find it on his own without my "help".
Sometimes it takes the cooperation of several parties to further the cause.
In my opinion any crashes should be investigated with this level of
detail. A skilled developer can typically find the problem within
minutes just by making that little bit of extra effort. Every time
something "doesn't work" users are often alienated and some other
software (usually written by MS) wins another small victory. But again,
this is just my opinion.

I can't replicate your problem. Switching from Print layout to Web layout
and back doesn't cause any crash. I'm using LibreOffice 188.8.131.52 under
Windows XP Pro x86 SP3 en_US
If you want to return to the last edited position when you open the document
just follow this topic
Hope this helps.
