The table toolbar can be accessed by creating a table (context dependent) and by enabling the toolbar in Menu -> View -> Table. I personally prefer a steady toolbar, instead of which switches on and off. However the explicitly enabled table toolbar will still automatically close after exiting a table.
There is no solution for this. I can create a new toolbar with the same table functionality which stay's behind, but I can't delete the table toolbar completely.
The frame toolbar behaves the same way
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a Writer document
2. Enable table toolbar: View -> Toolbar -> Table
3. Add a table (CTRL+F12)
4. Click below the table -> Toolbar disappears
The table toolbar is context depend even when it's explicitly enabled
If the table toolbar is explicitly enabled, it should stay enabled

Hopefully bug 103240 will allow a means of fully turn it on my its state of on when in context.
@Cor, @Stuart, @Sophie: Do you know of anyway to stop a contextual toolbar from disappear, as i know you can permanently disable a contextual toolbar from appearing.
@Maxim, @Muhammet: Any idea how difficult this would be to fix, or is all that is needed is to change 'ContextSensitive' from true to false in the user profile?

AFAIK changing 'ContextSensitive' alone won't do this. The handling of contextual toolbars is hardcoded in the application code (with Impress/Draw having different code for that than Writer/Calc). What we need is to refactor that code so toolbar context will be set directly in *WindowState.xcu (using vcl::Context enum), similar to what we have for the sidebar.
But currently 'ContextSensitive' does only 2 things:
1. Ignore 'Visible' at application start (i.e. 'ContextSensitive' + 'Visible' means visible when the correct context active). But it have no effect on what will happen later while using the application.
2. Changes the state of View > Toolbars > Reset. If there is at least one 'ContextSensitive' toolbar with 'Visible'=false', that menu item will be enabled, and will allow setting it back to true.

I don't see any way of having the toolbar without the context, even if you dock it, it will disappear when leaving the context. Sophie
Setting it to LibreOffice, instead of Writer.

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

*** Bug 137757 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
This is also a problem with Impress (reported in the dupe 137757), specifically with the Table and Text Formatting toolbars.
I would even claim that it's worse in Impress, having more of the jarring effect of repositioning the focused object on your monitor (although I suppose what's worse is kind of subjective).
Anyway, and for the record - confirming this occurs with:
