I found I can not change font color in LO 4.[4].3 under Linux.
The procedure is:
(1) Open Writer or Calc.
(2) Type some words in Writer or Calc.
(3) Select the words and change the color of words.
(4) Writer still not change it.

Do you perhaps inadvertently have a tick in the option at Tools | Options... | LibreOffice | Accessibility | Options for high-contrast appearance | Use automatic font colour for screen display? If so, the text will remain in a high-contrast colour - black if the background is light - in the normal editing display, but will nevertheless be marked as the chosen colour and will still print or export as PDF correctly.

If you also have "Use system colours for page previews" ticked, Page Preview will also be affected; otherwise Page Preview will show the correct colour.

I trust this helps.
