The sticky toolbars are requested frequently. The issue is not only relevant at tables but also shapes, lists, images etc.

bug 36976: Add option to disable the automatic popping up of toolbars 
bug 38850: UI: Bullets and Numbering toolbar disappears. Allow make it persistent 

Taking the first as prototype.

As a workaround you may pick one of the alternative UIs (aka Notebookbar), see View > User Interface > *
