When I do a bible search in

av bible on abide with all word forms the results do not include abideith.

search using adid* works, but I should not have to do this for every KJV search

any suggestions?

I am in a hurry at the moment, but a screen shot might be informative.

You typed "abideith" but I assume you meant "abideth." I get 30 hits in the AV for "abideth" and 128 hits with "abid*".

You are correct that a search for "abide" with "match all forms" will not find "abideth." That should be reported to Logos.

Make sure that "Match All Word Forms" is checked.

It's in the drop down menu in the upper left of the search panel:

The method for "all forms" is algorithmic, and it is difficult for FL to make changes.

The "Match all word forms" setting uses an algorithmic stemmer designed for modern English; it doesn't handle some of the endings used in the KJV, such as abideth, hath, shalt, thou/thee/thine, etc.
