I have a specific page in which I want to change the float settings, but I do not want to change them globally. Specifically, I would like to increase the \bottomfraction of a page. Is this possible?

Under the normal settings, bottom floats are placed below footnotes. With \usepackage[bottom]{footmisc} you exchange the order. –  egreg Oct 25 '13 at 12:15
Excellent! This actually solved my particular problem. Out of pure interest, I would still be interested whether what I asked is possible anyway. –  Ingo Oct 25 '13 at 12:52
Well, you don't provide a MWE. Float placement is a sensitive thing. I don't know what you want: if you want the float above the footmark, use what @egreg says. If you want it for instance on the next page, just move it further down in the sourcecode and use [!b]. –  tohecz Oct 25 '13 at 14:23
I cannot provide an MWE for exactly that reason, I cannot reproduce the exact same situation in one. But the way I pose the question, I think there is no need for an MWE. Either it is possible to change the float parameters locally, or it is not. Let's forget about the specific question I had. –  Ingo Oct 26 '13 at 16:05
