The Bullets and Numbering toolbar disappears when not being used.
When I check View> Toolbars> Bullets and Numbering, the toolbar becomes visible.
I dock the Bullets and Numbering toolbar.
If I backspace on a line, deleting the Bullet/Number, the toolbar disappears which requires that I recheck the toolbar to make it visible again.
If I check view the toolbar (to make it visible) then the toolbar should remain visible until I uncheck it.

This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:

Dear bug submitter!
Due to the fact, that there are a lot of NEEDINFO bugs with no answer within the last six months, we close all of these bugs.
To keep this message short, more infos are available @ https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/NeedinfoClosure#Statement
Thanks for understanding and hopefully updating your bug, so that everything is prepared for developers to fix your problem.
It looks like RFE bugreport. Reopening.
I can confirm this bug in LO 4.0beta1 on platform windows vista
Same behaviour is also seen for tables toolbar (it disappears when focus moves out from the table in any document)
This issue is related to bug 34451 and apparently inherited from OOo.
I can confirm this bug in 4.3.2.
I'll copy my comment from https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=81475#c23 here:
I think that dynamic appearance/disappearance of toolbars is not a good idea.
For me it is comfortable to place toolbars once and use them when I want to use them, not contextually (current object- or action- dependent).
But now in 4.3.2 toolbars disappear even if they have Lock Toolbar Position option checked. Please enable static toolbar positions.
Popping toolbars may cause attention switch and may lower document author's productivity. Otherwise you will create another stupid, ugly, non-usable Ribbon/MFI. I think that many LibreOffice users would be happy with MS Office 2003-like interface.
Users do not need bells and whistles, they need comfortable and customizable interface. This interface should allow users to place and pin (lock) toolbars as they want and use keyboard shortcuts for more productivity (for example, the fastest way to add Cross-Reference is to press <Alt-i><e>).
