This happens to be false if you check "Search for text when I start 
typing" in Preferences > Advanced > General, or start your find with '/' 
instead of Ctrl+F even if that checkbox is not checked.

In that situation the find bar will show when you start searching, then 
hide itself off a timer.  As in, "randomly", from the point of view of 
the user.

Note that I did mention all this in the bug that people seem to not be 
reading anymore...
