If there are items you do not need in the toolbar, you can turn them off by clicking on the arrow at the right side of the tool bar and removing the check marks. This may buy you the real estate you need to keep the zoom slider visible.

On English keyboards, the [ - } [ + } keys will also zoom you in and out.

I agree -- it's annoying when the thumbnail size slider disappears in smaller windows. There's one partial workaround you may not know about -- you can select which controls appear in that bottom toolbar:

Mine is gone in even the full screen view. How do I get the darn thing back?

What happens when you click on the down-arrow in the right-corner of the tool bar, as shown in the screen shot above? Do you see "Thumbnail Size", and does it have a checkmark next to it?
