comment Alternate of \setitemize only for bibliography
What are you using for creating your bibliography? natbib has a length \bibsep; biblatex has a length \bibitemsep.

comment Unpleasant high frames of citation or reference in paragraphs
Here's another relevant question: Constant height and depth of hyperref link boxes. If you put the citation in an \mbox it will go back to the normal height. Not an ideal solution in the general case, though, but it's not clear there's a better one.

comment Unpleasant high frames of citation or reference in paragraphs
I understand that, and you are correct, but your document as given won't compile for anyone but you, whereas one with a reference to an equation, which will show the same effect, will compile for everyone.

comment Unpleasant high frames of citation or reference in paragraphs
You can edit your question to include the example (I've done that for you); however, since the same problem arises with a reference to an equation, you could make the problem more self-contained by not using a citation in the example. Or see How to write a MWEB (Minimal working example with Bibliography)? for how to include a sample .bib file in your example.

comment Unpleasant high frames of citation or reference in paragraphs
Sorry, then it wasn't clear from your question. Can you post a minimal example that illustrates the problem?

comment Babel with UKenglish does not use British English hyphenation?
See the following question for some detailed discussion: Why does \usepackage[british]{babel} change the hyphenation to wrong? (In fact I think your question could be considered a duplicate of this.)

comment Babel with UKenglish does not use British English hyphenation?
The hyphenation pattern for produce is the same in both the American and UKEnglish hyphenation patterns: pro-duce. The UKEnglish pattern is based on the Oxford sources as the linked question. Whether there are discrepancies is a separate issue.

comment Sublime Text with LaTeXTools sets wrong PATH for TeX in OSX Mavericks
What happens if you put the class in the same folder as your document? Does sublime find it then? If it does then perhaps sublime is setting its paths incorrectly.

comment Making a probability tree using tikzpicture / forest
Can you please edit your question and combine your code fragments into a single compilable document? This will make it easier for others to play with the code.

comment Foreach loop between two lists
Welcome to TeX.sx! This is a nice minimal example. I think you want to have another picture with \testb in it though, right?

@DavidJurgens See my updated answer. This is not the source of the problem.

comment Selectively modify some citations appearance
Do you just need a single particular name to be bolded or an arbitrary list of names?

Ok, sorry about that. Yes, you're right this is not a duplicate. Other voters: please do NOT vote to close!

comment How to center the column headers in a Table?
You need to use \multicolumn{1}{c} for each column. (like you did in the first.)

comment alphabetical order in bibtex with accented words
bibtex cant' handle UTF-8 encoded .bib files. See How to write “ä” and other umlauts and accented letters in bibliography? for how to handle accented characters with bibtex. For sorting issues with standard bibtex see Strange problem with BibTeX sorting. You might want to consider switching to biblatex and biber which can handle such files (and sort them correctly) out of the box. See bibtex vs. biber and biblatex vs. natbib

comment Include all *.bib files in one directory to a bibliography
@mcwise This probably means you didn't put the files into your local (i.e. user level) texmf but into the system-wide local texmf folder. The system-wide folder is in /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local; your user level folder is in different places depending on your OS. (To find out what it is you can use the command line kpsewhich -var-value TEXMFHOME). Files in the texmf-local folder (but not in TEXMFHOME) require the mktexlsr command to be to rebuild their file databases; this is what tlmgr did when you updated. The update itself wasn't actually relevant.
