So what I want is the following:
When I select a layer in the GIMP it should not put a yellow line around it.

Does anybody know how this is possible?

One more thing. It doesn't save this setting when I close the window. How can I make it save this setting?

I think if you go to File - Preferences - Image Windows - Appearance and Untick "Show layer boundary" there it will save it.
