comment How to remove typed-in URLs from browser history in Firefox?
Thanks for your answer, Jacques – but I don't want to disable auto-suggest completely. My goal was just to keep some URLs from being included here.

comment Restoring Evolution email data files after upgrade
The ~/.config/evolution location is not the only one to consider here. For reference, please take a look at Copying Evolution emails from Ubuntu 10.10 to 12.10, Restore an evolution file, and also other questions containing 'evolution migration'.

comment Evolution: How to change default sort criteria in address book?
No need (feeling stupid). Switch back to "card view", and the problem is still there. So if your question rather is concerning "card view", it's still open and valid.

comment Disabling Zeitgeist
@Seth I can't say for 14.04 as I'm not using that (the one Ubuntu machine left with me is still on 12.04, for the others I've switched to Debian or Mint). Recommend to ping Lucas for this (see upvoted comment above), as he's confirming it for 14.04.

Exactly my intention: show a way that can easily be "reverted", while minimizing impact on the system :)

comment Correct password is not accepted for Evolution
Apart from what Anders pointed out in his answer, could it be you've got some "special characters" in your password? I've had a similar issue when setting up Evolution to work with my ownCloud account while having a $ in my password. Changing my password to a different one not including that solved the problem for me.

comment Software recommendations for writing a novel?
LibreOffice (which you are already using) also supports the concept of "Global Documents" consisting of multiple sub-documents. It's more than 15 years ago I've used that (back with its pre-decessor StarOffice on DOS), but it should be worth a try: Make each chapter a separate document to deal with, and whenever you need the whole thing, call up the global "master document".

comment How to remove typed-in URLs from browser history in Firefox?
Thanks for the explanation, @Nattgew – I was just about to ask if that shouldn't read "42" instead ;) // user283259: Still open question to me, how to calculate that number so it kicks off only those URLs I want to get rid off. My question was not about disabling auto-complete generally, but just to remove several URLs from appearing within (quoting from the question: switching auto-complete off altogether is no option for me). So does your answer fit that – and if so, how?
