Hi and/but sorry:
this is not a feature request but a bug report!
this modal dialog after starting FMP is no good behavior. Under circumstances this is disturbing the workflow of the system since "RESUME" is a system wide standard.
No other application that I know does such a thing similar to FMP.
Modal dialogs should only appear in response to user interaction.
The behavior of FMP after launching is a very old problem and had changed during the last decade. Unfortunately also the current method is not optimal and should be optimized in some way IMHO (I have no solution for that problem at all).
Maybe it is better using a floating window. Also (and this is a feature request) I like to be able to disable that window on startup in the FMP preferences window.
FileMaker Go has a similar problem…
