Another case:
(1) Open "http://www.adobe.com/flashplatform" and play the flash of it
(2) Close browser, then you will find the flash still keeps playing even
browser UI is invisible
(3) Click browser application icon to try to launch browser again
(4) There will show a dialog saying browser is already running, but in fact you
can not see it (can not see browser UI)
