Customize window

Retrieve icon automatically for favorite links
- a new button to retrieve the web site icon (favicon) and assign it to the added or edited favorite (replacing the existing icon if it has one)
- website icon images are saved in the folder "icons" under the QAP working directory (it is created the first time if it did not exist)
- when adding or editing a favorite of type "Link", rename the button "Get title" to "Get title and icon" and retrieve both
- retrieve website icon and webpage title using asynchronous HTTP requests with a timeout after 10 seconds (each) avoiding hanging QAP if the website does not respond
- added a new option in "Options, Menu Appearance" to shorten long paths in "Recent Folders", "Recent Files", "Frequent Folders" and "Frequent Files" menus
- for new installations, under the "In the Works" submenu, move the "Recent Folders" and "Recent Files" menus to the top
- in the "Free Edition", limit "Frequent Folders", Frequent Files", "Recent Folders" and "Recent Files" menus to 5 enabled items
- add two QAP Features "Current Folders" and "Current Applications" to show only open folders or only running applications as an alternatives to the "Current Windows" menu that shows both (add a favorite of type "QAP Feature" and select the category "Dynamic Menus")
- when building a menu, prevent the unexpected situation where a favorite would not have a short name for the menu by giving it a temporary name
- French, Italian, Spanish, German, Korean, Portuguese, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian and Chinese language files updates
- fix encoding errors in some translation files
