Hi gbak. I see that you've posted the same question at fcp.co forums.
There is no solution, the "feature" of a stationary playhead does not currently exist in Final Cut Pro X.
It's a frequently requested option, perhaps Apple will add it in a future update. Meanwhile, don't waste your time worrying about it, just focus on good editing.
Meanwhile a couple of things that might help you:
(1) Do you have a Magic Trackpad for your Mac? I use the "two-finger slide" technique which smoothly flows the visible part of the timeline back and forth across the screen.
(2) Turn on the skimmer and play with it. It took a while to get used to, but I like it!
