comment \addbibresource pointing to remote files located on the root of my svn repository
You didn't read the documentation. "Remote resources require Biber.", so it won't work with backend=bibtex8.

comment New fixltx2e, bigfoot conflict?
It is obviously a conflict of the \MakeSorted command of the perpage package with the new code in fixltx2e to reset all dependant counters. But it needs more digging to find out if and how one can avoid it.

comment Installing LaTeX on a personal (externally hosted) web server to render images
You could also look at quicklatex.com. If you really want to make the graphics yourself: I would make them locally and upload only the graphics to your domain. Installing and running a large program like latex on a server needs skills that you don't seem to have (me neither). E.g. how do you want to secure the server against misuses from others?

comment Typography rules : how to apply them on such tabulars
I would use \arrayrulecolor{white} to get white rules.

comment Problem installing biber - dll error followed by can't load warning in TexMaker
You probably don't want the cygwin version but the native on: sourceforge.net/projects/biblatex-biber/files/biblatex-biber/…

comment Chemfig package compatibility
I just came across this error message in TeXLive 2013 due to a \DeclareMathVersion as the latex kernel used a \global\newcount in \new@mathversion. This problem has been resolved in TeXLive2014.

comment \graphicspath not working
I never used sharelatex but I would find it quite alarming if it could access files on my PC through absolute pathes.

comment Change base fontsize for rest of document
Did you get errors with my example? Or did you simply try in a large document? That's not a good idea. Start in a small document. And yes: changing the class can change the formatting. So you will have to decide if it is worth the trouble.

comment Using international accents in the whole document
You don't need xelatex or lualatex to be able to handle input like "Äöü". They work with pdflatex too. Simply add \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} (assuming that your file is utf8 encoded).

comment siunitx and summary statistics below table - separate alignment block possible?
I would then probably use \rlap{***} for the significance symbols so that they take no place and enlarge the intercolumn space.

comment How can I set a font size smaller than \tiny in lstlisting?
Beamer defines also \Tiny and \TINY for very small text.

comment \clubpenalty and \widowpenalty seem to have no impact
If you want to keep more lines together you could try \widowpenalties=3 10000 10000 150. But I wouldn't put such restrictions on the pagebreaking: It will probably bite back somewhere else.

comment Proofreading methods for LaTeX
If the supervisor is mentioned as (co-)author on your titlepage then is is naturally ok to look for tools to make the joint work easier but as long as it is your thesis and your grading you should be careful to have clear boundary between your and her work. Beside this I agree with Karl: The best proofreading is made on paper. And it is much easier to handle changes if only person has access to the source file of the paper.

comment FIles produced by compiling LaTeX source code
This question has been ask quite a lot of times here. Search for "auxiliary" and "delete" or "clean". And if you use one method: make sure that you know to stop the clean up. It is difficult to help people who can't find the log-file because some overeager editor is hiding or deleting it.
