I remember there is this page:

All issues found should definitely be added there.

This is strange, though: I use firefox, and firefox can indeed remember
my password and does fill in the login form for me; the problem I have
is that I need to login all the time, and I can't set it up to stick a
cookie on my browser and be happy with it.

As for the question marks in the middle of words and the other weird
bejaviours, do you have an example pages that show the problem?  I've
never experienced what you report (yet).
