I used to get double loads when I used the touchpad on my laptop. When I use a mouse, they very rarely occur (usually only when there is a glitch on the site). I still check my solving rate every few...

I just had a 7 second solve with no problems, so the problem is probably with your connection.

No, I listened to the song on YouTube, but I don't know it from my childhood. There are Finnish versions of Itsy Bitsy Spider and Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star, though.

Most of the quotes don't even use the whole alphabet, and you only have to type each letter once, so most of the quote just fills itself :)

One more thing about the difficulty stars - if the solving rate is less than 10%, it means that most of the people who found the quote extremely hard never got the chance to give it any stars at all.
