You can insert \unskip before \footnote and also a \space after \@makefnmark within \@makefntext (when the mark is set as part of the footnote text):

enter image description here


\usepackage[paper=a6paper]{geometry}% Just for this example

% Remove space before \footnote

% Insert space after mark in footnote text
% \patchcmd{<cmd>}{<search>}{<replace>}{<success>}{<failure>}


\vspace*{\fill}% Just for this example

In the text: abc \footnote{abc}
