comment “Click to expand” feature in latex document
When talking about PDF, you should generally ask yourself 'how would I print that?'. If you can't think of a reasonable way to print what you're thinking, chances are it's not possible. Note: 'reasonable way to print' doesn't have to be 'what's shown in an electronic version'.

Strange indeed. If you run kpsewhich mdframed.sty from the Terminal, what does it say?

comment Help in debugging the code
You probably have a \usepackage somewhere after \begin{document}. \usepackage can only be used before \begin{document} (i.e., in the preamble).

If you don't want spam, I would really remove your email address. StackExchange is completely public. (Editing now doesn't stop crawlers from going through the revision history, though.)

comment I cannot latex from within emacs
More information about @ArashEsbati's suggestion: M-x list-packages, search for 'auctex', press i and then x to install. (or more directly, M-x package-install RET auctex RET.) Regardless, this will not likely solve your problem. For that, we really do need more information.

comment I cannot latex from within emacs
If you use C-h m from a LaTeX file in emacs, that will tell you whether you're running AUCTeX or the 'vanilla' latex-mode (which is severely lacking, in my opinion). For example, AUCTeX will say something like LaTeX/P mode defined in `tex-mode.el'. Other than that, I would try to eval (executable-find "tex"). If it returns nil, then you have an emacs-specific environment issue (which can easily be solved).

comment Why does “fi” render to 㐌 when I compile my Latex to SVG using dvisvgm?
It's important to explicitly note that these solutions will 'break' ligatures (as you said), i.e. will tear apart f and i such that they visually clash. Not an ideal solution, but it's certainly better than 㐌.

sounds like OP should remove an openright option (if it exists) and add the openany option to the document class.

comment Tikz automaton placed too far to the right
@sautedman sounds like you should increase the paper size on your standalone document. i would ask a new question, though – follow-up questions like this are oft forgotten.

comment Footnote Issue in Overleaf
Glad I could help :) but are you sure the local output was fine? Note that I'm not talking about the PDF output; I'm talking about the console output when you compile the document. Most editors configure TeX to continue running past errors (up to a certain threshold).

comment What is the proper way to change the section title font in LaTeX?
@cfr I never said I made any sense :) Sorry for the general confusion. Canageek, that's a fair point – I never considered that. It's my understanding though that journals will enforce their style to a tee – such customizations as this are generally for nought. But that's probably a discussion for chat :)
