Icon size in Okular and other applications

Hi,

I've got Plasma 5 on a HiDPI monitor (Apple MacBookPro 12,1, retina display).
With some tuning, I've managed to set the right size for most icons on my
desktop and many applications.

However, there are some applications where icons are still too small. One
example is Okular and the icons of the menu entries, as you can see in the
attached screenshot. There are also other applications with similar little
issues.

Is there anything I can do to change the size of these icons?

Notes widget: semi-transparent background

I'm in plasma 5 and I'm customizing the breeze dark theme. In my
metadata.desktop file I've got the following values in the ContrastEffetct
section:

[ContrastEffect]
enabled=true
contrast=0.45
intensity=0.45
saturation=1.7

Thanks to them, the panel, the menu, notifications, etc. are not completely
transparent, so readability is improved.

How can I apply such parameters to the Notes widget as well? Currently, if I
choose a translucent background, the widget becomes completely transparent.

Plasma 5: screen locker font color

I am on Plasma 5, and I've been using the pre-installed Breeze Dark theme for
some time, but now I've just installed the Naked desktop theme [1], through
the Get new Theme functionality in System Settings.

I like it, but there is one thing that annoys me. The font color in the screen
locker used to be white in Breeze Dark, as well as any other standard theme,
but in Naked it is black. Since I use a pretty dark background image in the
screen locker, readability is low.

FTP with SSL/TLS in Dolphin

Hi, is there a reason why FTP with SSL/TSL (ftps://) has not been implemented
in Dolphin?

There are some wishlist bug reports about, like the following from from 2003:
<a href="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=66117" title="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=66117">https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=66117</a>

There was a kio-ftps, but it didn't work very well. Furthermore, it hasn't
been ported to Plasma / KF 5.

I wonder whether this protocol is somehow discouraged, or it's just a missing
feature.
