In recent LO version (7.1 at this times), the Writer's simple search UI (i.e. defaulting to a specific toolbar at the bottom of the window) is quite similar to the one provided in Firefox for example, but sadly is missing one of it's best feature : incremental searching (i.e. the search starts as soon as you type).

This has been reported:

I am not entirely convinced that this is a flaw. If your demand were met, the editor would flutter all over the text while typing a longer phrase, effectively making it impossible to work.
