I was using the Fresh 5.0.1 version and encounter two bugs in Writer

Attached files are removed by the mailing list processor before
messages are distributed. So no-one will have seen your picture.
So I downgraded to the stable version of Still 4.4.5 but the same
two bugs happen. How to fix it?
It's possible that this is not a software bug and has nothing to do
with LibreOffice. Are you perhaps using a system - probably a
notebook - with a touch-sensitive trackpad? if so, it is quite
possible that you are touching the trackpad with part of your hand -
perhaps your thumb - or dragging it over the trackpad whilst you are
typing. These actions will respectively move the cursor position or
select a region of text, producing exactly the effects you describe.
The fact that it occurs with different software versions provides
extra evidence for this diagnosis. You notice it in LibreOffice
because that is the application you mostly use.
You will probably find it difficult to believe that you are doing
this, but I can assure you that I have watched people doing exactly
this! Since you are concentrating on typing, you will not be aware of
exactly what your thumb is doing. Get someone to watch you typing in
order to be convinced. If this is your problem, you will find that
you can adjust the sensitivity of the trackpad; this setting will be
in your operating system (in Control Panel? under Mouse?), not in
LibreOffice. If you reduce the sensitivity sufficiently, you should
find this problem goes away.
I trust this helps.
