Linux (Debian) user since long time ago, some of my actual fields of interest are currently improve my limited skills with LaTeX and R (at the same time thanks to Sweave). My apologies if you find unclear anything of what I write. English is not my native language and I've never been in any type of regular English courses.

Precooked comments: Text building blocks

Welcome to TeX.sx! Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}.

A tip: If you indent lines by 4 spaces or enclose words in backticks ```, they'll be marked as code, as can be seen in my edit. You can also highlight the code and click the "code" button (with "{}" on it).

comment Some table references sometimes not working
Increment the floats options (for example [htbp!]), move the \input with floats to left more text between floats, and use \clearpage as a last resort (that's why \include seem to solve the problem). To avoid a page break exactly where \clearpage is placed, use the package afterpage, so you can place this command just at the end of the actual page with \afterpage{\clearpage}.

comment How to detect if abstract reaches a second page, in order to add a header
@MattFenwick, your MWE could be some like \documentclass{article} \usepackage{lipsum} \begin{document} \begin{abstract} \lipsum[1-10] \end{abstract} \end{document} but probably your thesis is not a article class, and in the preamble you have header/footer definitions. We must know this to help you modifying your MWE.

comment How do I make my desired font be the default font in the memoir class?
@Acnologia In many font packages the serif font is the default, for example in \usepackage[bitstream-charter]{mathdesign} so if you want all your document in sans serif often you need to redefine the \familydefault. Some times this is simpliied with a package option. But there are also packages only with sans serif fonts, so you don't need change anything. For example \usepackage{iwona} is enough to obtain a sans serif.

comment How do I make my desired font be the default font in the memoir class?
@Sverre, I understand perfectly your perspective (I am not a mathematician), but most users here (not all) use maths, so in general another font is better. BTW, this was only a example, not a recommendation. Really I never use times or similar fonts (too narrow for my taste even in two columns). To recommend one, I would say palatino... well, with the permission of mathematicians, I meant mathpazo.

@daleif, Yes for example mathptmx or txfonts is better, no doubt. The sf line is only to show how to do, only "if" the base font will be serif, as I do not know what Acnologia want to do exactly.
