Hi Stephen, Thanks for the post! You can disable the splash screen by right clicking on the eyeball icon in the lower right hand corner by your clock. Choose "Dashboard". From "Dashboard", you'll want to choose "Advanced Configuration." There will be an option there to not display the splash screen.
Mmm, I tried that and it is not working for me. When I click on "Dashboard" my browser attempts to pull up a localhost url which it then cannot load. I get the error message "Problem loading page." My browser is Firefox 50.1.0.
