I recently stumbled upon this feature, and I LOOOOOOOOOVE IT!!!
Contents View, Hits Tab, Right Click, and select Expand All
It appears to "stick" on for all Searches until you turn it off by unchecking Expand All. Behaves exactly as I would like it to.
My question is could you add something to Help, because I did not find it in Help searching for Expand.
It is shown in Help under Contents View, but I noticed it shows an Expand All and Collapse All option, which I presume is from a version of FLP before 7.5
