2) maximize browser window
3) play a video, and press the fullscreen button
4) press esc, F11 or click the fullscreen button in bottom right to exit fullscreen
5) Expected result: parent window is still maximized and not obscured by launcher. Actual result: parent window maximized but obscured by launcher
