comment How do I succeed setting sublime text 3 as a default text editor on Yosemite?
What about simply selecting a file of the type you want to change, and do a Get Info, In that window, you can choose a preferred app for the file and also select Use this app to open all such files. I find that choice holds, even in Yosemite.

Sure, it's possible. Shouldn't be doing that. I might run Airport Utility, noting settings first, and start all over. Also changing DNS in Network Preferences & AU has helped some people.

comment ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED on browsing to one website
Not if only on your MBP. Can only add that I had to do three (3) internet installs (from Recovery Disk) to cure janky trackpad. Seems like all bets are off as to ordinary fixes, never mind customization, in Yosemite, and it can't be a coincidence that Sir Interface is in charge. In the long run, those reinstalls are easiest. I do fear El Capitan or Bridal Falls or whatever the hell it's called...

comment Enabling icon previews for custom text files
Sorry, I wasn't really sure what you were asking, and should have passed. You don't mean what shows up in Quicklook, do you? Good luck, anyway.

comment Enabling icon previews for custom text files
Possible, yes. But depends on which app you want to open them. Do a Get Info (Comm-I) on any one of them, scroll down to Open With, choose your app, and also choose Use this app to open all docs like this one. You can also copy and paste the doc icon from another .md file. Is this what you mean?

It's accessed in your Recovery Disk. Does not affect user accounts, but backup computer first. SuperDuper or Carbon Copy Cloner will clone your disk to an external drive. Fast connection means about 20 minutes download, and then it installs itself.
