You don't want the splash screen? Here's how you can disable it:

  1. Right click the icon you use to launch Mozilla, click on Properties.
  2. On the Shortcut tab, add "-nosplash" to the end of whatever is in the Target field (e.g. "C:\Program Files\mozilla.org\Mozilla\mozilla.exe" -nosplash).

Next time you use that shortcut to launch Mozilla, there will be no splash screen.

Bug: If you have Mail & Newsgroups set up to open on startup in your preferences using this command will stop this from happening [1].
