comment USB Device Issues - ongoing enumeration
Do you need to enter the passphrase before mounting the root partition, i.e. within the initrd or afterwards when root is already mounted?

comment Home folder icons dont change
Could it be that you started gnome-tweak-tool using sudo? because then you would have applied the changes only to the root account.

comment Internet connection lost for browser but still there for transmission
Guessing from the other answers it sounds like a problem with DNS. Could you try nslookup example.com when your network doesn't work. If you get a timeout this is probably a problem with the DNS server.

comment Partition Configuration to avoid reinstalling applications after update
Just decide if you want /opt or /usr/local, having both doesn't have any benefits. For future installation you'll just need to ensure that the software and its components are installed in that directory. For applications that are installed using configure + make or install scripts you'll maybe need to pass options to configure or install.sh to change the install directory.

comment Partition Configuration to avoid reinstalling applications after update
/usr is the place where applications that are delivered through the Ubuntu repositories are installed, and there are people that use a separate partition for /usr. /usr/local is also a very common place to but applications you installed yourself, but I would still suggest using /opt, because you'll only be installing some specific applications there and won't need a full /usr partition for that, but that could just be my opinion.
