Thanks for the answer. There seems to be a lot of misunderstanding about what files can be deleted, and when..

comment How can I view hidden files in the Finder?
Here is the command for Yosemite: defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles -boolean true ; killall Finder . Note the difference bool/boolean.

comment PDFs looking different in Yosemite Preview.app
In my opinion, this is a form of planned obsolescence. While sub-pixel smoothing was a cool trick to kinda multiply by 3 the horizontal resolution of LCD display, nowadays it becomes less useful due to the increasing resolution of monitors. It is pointless to do this on retina displays, and you can also notice that it has never been done on iPads (also maybe due to the fact that the screen can be rotated). IMO, Yosemite implies recent hardware, ie high DPI screens.

This looks like an interesting solution, as I no longer use Firefox as a browser. I'll try and see whether it works in practice or not.

comment Can I browse all the words in single list view in the Mavericks dictionary?
That's what I thought too, but there is no way to enumerate through the defined terms. There is nothing in the documented API to get a list of words that start with a string. There is a class called 'DictionaryRecordRepository' that I found in the class-dump of Dictionary.app executable that contains a few promising methods: + (id)recordRepositoryWithSearchString:(id)arg1; in DictionaryRecordRepository but this is private..
