comment An inaccessible folder with a random name has appeared in my ~/Pictures folder
I would move the folder into a new folder. You can try to zip it to keep a copy. Use df -h to see how much space you have left before and after doing this. If the folder itself cannot be deleted, you can try to delete the parent folder. No guarantees, but sometimes operations on parent folders work where they don't on the files or folders inside. You can also try chmod or chown and see how that works out.

Can you "open" the folder in an editor? Like in Vim: vim 3TNksAEHqX. Use a commandline editor. All folders are just files in Linux, so you can open them. You can do the same with a real folder and compare.

Disabling HTTPS Everywhere for Youtube does the trick. Not how I would like it, but it's good to know this solution! Thanks!

comment Apache 2.4 vhost not working
I don't see that line in any of the config files inside /etc/httpd. In the Apache 2.4 upgrade page it says that The NameVirtualHost directive no longer has any effect, other than to emit a warning. Any address/port combination appearing in multiple virtual hosts is implicitly treated as a name-based virtual host. See httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/upgrading.html

comment Can't browse HTTPS pages. TLS error. Outobox virus?
Some tips: set your system DNS to 8.8.8.8 (Google) or OpenDNS. Check your hosts file. And make a backup of important data!

Install Firefox, download from ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/30.0/win32/en-US/ if needed. If you open this in your browser it's https again, so you might want to use your ftp program. Then use FF until your problem is solved!

comment FTP clients: why don't they start downloading right away?
Well, sometimes I think that this results in double the download time, and many times I don't care about a progress report. This is similar to Windows Explorer, copying a folder with thousands of files, which can take many minutes before it even starts.
