I've 3 questions:

1)Is the firmware 4.6.9995 the fastest and stablest one today?

2)Does the patch `Dictionary text font-family/font-size/line-height - beta` remove totally the 4 margins? (What must I write otherwise?)

3)Can I edit the abovementioned patch in order to obtain something like this in the popup window of my dictionary? Example:

entry1definition1definition1definition1definition1defini tion1definition1definition1definition1definition1d efinition1definition1definition1definition1definit ion1definition1definition1definition1
entry2definition2definition2definition2definition2defini tion2definition2definition2definition2definition2d efinition2definition2definition2definition2definit ion2

Speed and stability is in the eye of the beholder. I can't really comment. But 4.6.9995 is almost a year old and there have been many later releases.

Well, this particular patch is not really about margins at all, it's about the font-family, font-size and line-height used for the dictionary definitions.

However, if you want to experiment yourself, and you know what you're doing, you could customise the base patch to see if you like it better. Change where I've highlighted in red from 1em to 0px. You must not change the length of the old and new strings.

Code:
# ##### N.B. Do not change the next 2 lines #####
find_base_address = `* { font: %1px %2; line-height: %5em; }`
replace_string = 0000, `* { font: %1px %2; line-height: %5em; }\ndiv.descriptionFont { font-family: %3; }\nol { font-size: %1px; font-weight: bold; margin-left: %4em; margin-top: 0px; }\nol p { font-size: %1px; font-weight:normal; }\n`, `* { font-size: 40px; line-height: 1.4em; font-family: Georgia                                           ;}\n        \nol   { margin-left: 1em; margin-top: 0px; }\nol p { font-size:  1em; font-weight:normal; }\n`
# ##### N.B. Do not change anything above this line #####
However, there's only so much you can do because you can't change the underlying HTML structure inside the built-in Kobo dictionaries which are encrypted. I believe they use an HTML ordered list structure (<ol> and <li>'s) for the multiple definitions. <ol> and <li> tags carry a certain amount of implied default styling.

Yes (https://github.com/geek1011/kobopatc...ckie_w.yaml#L2), it's been there for quite a while.

@Owl_
If you're still interested in list style, you can test this nickel patch.
Spoiler:

Code:
Main list definition:
  - Enabled: no
  - Description: |
      Your own list style.
  - FindZlib: "reader_head"
  - ReplaceZlib:
      Find:    ".text_body ul, \n.text_body ol \n{\n\tmargin: 1.5em 0px 2em 2em;\n}\n\
                .text_body li \n{\n\tmargin: 0px 0px 0.25em 0px;\n}\n\
                .text_body ul ul,\n.text_body ol ol \n{\n\tmargin: 0.75em 0 1em 2em;\n\tmin-width: 250px;\n}"
      Replace: ".text_body ul,.text_body ol{margin:1em 0em 1em 0em;}\n\
                .text_body li{margin:0em 0em 0.25em 0em;}\n\
                .text_body ul ul,.text_body ol ol{margin:0.5em 0em 0em 0em;min-width:250px;}"
or
Code:
Your own list styles:
  - Enabled: no
  - Description: |
      Your own list styles.
  - FindZlib: "reader_head"
  - ReplaceZlib:
      Find:    ".text_body ul, \n.text_body ol \n{\n\tmargin: 1.5em 0px 2em 2em;\n}\n\This's my dictionary
                .text_body li \n{\n\tmargin: 0px 0px 0.25em 0px;\n}\n\
                .text_body ul ul,\n.text_body ol ol \n{\n\tmargin: 0.75em 0 1em 2em;\n\tmin-width: 250px;\n}"
      Replace: ".text_body ul{margin:1em 0em 1em 0em;}\n\
                .text_body ol{margin:1em 0em 1em 0em;}\n\
                .text_body li{margin:0em 0em 0.25em 0em;}\n\
                .text_body ul ul{margin:0.5em 0em 0em 0em;min-width:250px;}\n\
                .text_body ol ol{margin:0.5em 0em 0em 0em;min-width:250px;}"

NOTE:
Set the margin for each side of an element (top, right, bottom, and left) into Replace.

Good luck.

EDIT:
Warning: Obviously, I didn't probe it on 4.4.9298 but I think this piece doesn't changed.

EDIT²:
Read the next post.

The 'Dictionary text font-family/font-size/line-height - beta' (for libnickel.so.1.0.0) has been a part of the standard patch pack for a long time. I have the responsibility for maintaining it. Why are you rewriting it?

If you think you've got some good ideas how to improve it then the polite thing to do would be to discuss it with me in one of the patch threads. If appropriate, I can then incorporate any improvements into the standard pack. However, in this particular case, the code you highlighted in red is already part of the standard patch. What are you hoping to achieve?

IMHO rewriting someone else's patch without reference to the original is extremely rude and it's not the first time you've done something similar. We already have enough problems with conflicting patches without you making it worse.
