The layer being edited always have a black border around it, this is rather annoying especially when I draw something small, anyone knows how to remove it? Thanks.

It's called Target Path and is shown for all smart object layers in Photoshop.

To inactivate it you go: View -> Show -> Target Path (Shift + Ctrl + H) and deselect it.
