See Mishna B'rura (108:11), who indicates that the repetition of the amida does not create a problematic interruption since the person is still involved in the first prayer. Thus, it appears that the person should wait and say tachanun and ashrei with the congregation.


As quoted here: One should preferably keep his feet entirely together during the Amida, though those who keep only the heels together have authorities on whom to rely (Halacha Berura).


See this article from yeshiva.org.il which quotes השו"ע על פי הגמרא: שיהיו רגליו צמודות זו לזו עד שנראה כאלו שתיהן הן רגל אחת. מקור הלכה זו נלמד מספר יחזקאל, מתוך תיאור המלאכים בזמן עמידתם לפני ה', שכתוב עליהם "ורגליהם רגל ישרה", כלומר נראים כרגל אחת the Shulchan Oruch according to the Gemoro that the two feet have to appear as one foot. ...


Brachot 13a: תני בר קפרא כל הקורא לאברהם אברם עובר בעשה Bar Kaparah says someone who calls Avraham Avram "passes over" a positive commandment I infer, then, that this is problematic. Since the Gemarrah uses a "long" expression "Passes over a positive commandment" rather than stating "he sinned", it seems to mean that the person missed an ...


According to this article from the Da'at website: During the repetition of the amida, it is the Tunisian custom for the congregation to respond "livracha" (meaning "for blessing") after the words "Morid hageshem" (meaning "He brings down the rain", recited during the winter months) or "Morid hatal" (meaning "He brings down the dew", recited during the ...


Kitzur Shulchan Aruch 19:9 says: טעה במעריב ליל ראשון של פסח והתפלל תפלת שמונה עשרה של חול, ונזכר לאחר שהתחיל ברך עלינו שהדין הוא שצריך לסיים כל אותה ברכה (כמו שנתבאר לעיל סימן ע״ו) אינו אומר טל ומטר כיון שגם הציבור אינם אומרים. ואם חלה השאלה (הוא יום התחלת לשאול טל ומטר) ביום שבת וטעה והתפלל של חול והתחיל ברך עלינו גם כן אינו אומר טל ומטר כיוון שהציבור ...


Kitzur Shulchan Aruch 19:4 says to omit "ומוריד הטל" and continue "מכלכל חיים בחסד". This is despite his acknowledging in 19:3 the existence of the version "משיב הרוח ומוריד הטל".


While the following source is not a modern Posek, it still may be of interest. R' Yehuda Hachasid writes in Sefer Chasidim (ch.158) "When you pray, add your own needs to the formula of each Bracha according to its topic, because this increases your concentration. And if you can't add on to every Bracha because the congregation finishes earlier, add on to one ...


As far as I'm aware, there is no well-accepted posek who would permit this. Even R. Abadi, who has many unusual opinions and allows recitation of a shorter version of Birkas Hamazon, implies in that teshuvah that one cannot arbitrarily shorten the Shemoneh Esre. While additions to anyone's personal prayers are allowed (see Shulchan Aruch O.C. 119), this is ...
