On Linux for some reason Firefox doesn't recognize real mimetype of binary files and treats them all as application/octet-stream. And it opens this mimetype (and thus .pdf, .doc and other files) in a default text editor - Gedit in my case.

Add a shortcut to your launcher. I would not change the main command of the gedit launcher.

These files are backups. Gedit creates them in case you make a mistake when editing a file, so you can restore it afterwards. So if you're sure that you don't want to revert those changes, you can safely delete those files ending in "~". This behavior can be changed if you want to.

Gedit has an option under the Editor tab in the preferences which will create a backup copy of a file before saving which is checked by default in Ubuntu and can be disabled to remove this functionality. Also it is generally safe to delete these files as they are only backups of the originals, obviously the only un-safe time to delete them would be if you ...

There is a plugin which restores the expected Ctrl+Tab, Ctrl+Shift+Tab tab switching. It was originally created for Gedit 3, but I updated the plugin for Gedit 3.8 and above.

There is another way to not deal with such warnings. Use graphical frontend for sudo/su - gksu (in case of gnome) for running GUI programs as root. Gtk-WARNING : Calling Inhibit failed
