After the last running applet is closed (leave the page where it is embedded to or close the tab or window), the JVM stops automatically.

After then, when you navigate to a page where an applet is located, a new JVM is launched. To override this behavior you use a special parameter in the initial applet.

<PARAM NAME="legacy_lifecycle" VALUE="true">
or you unselect the new generation Java plugin option in the Java Panel.
