Weird Photoshop bugs: Sames JPG filled with PSD info, and some pixel bugs (probably RAM related)

Photoshop is acting a little weird lately. I never bumped into bugs for years, or I didn't notice them. But now 3 situations in 2 days?

1. I plugged in my canon scanner, used the normal scan program of the OS X and said that I'd like to create a new layer on an existing picture in Photoshop.
It inserted some row (horizontally) of pixels which kind a looked like an open tab of my Chrome browser. Those pixels repeated themselves.
Does Photoshop take information from my RAM which shouldn't?

Mac OS X 10.10.5, NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 1024 MB
Photoshop 20150722.r.168 x64

2. Different Mac, but same properties.
I created JPEGs out of PDSs. I wondered why one file was like 4MB big when they are supposed to be about 300KB big. I looked up. It said it is a "*.jpg".
I send it to a friend, she wanted to open it in another program and this program said, "Can't open a PSD file".
I took a closer look. Photoshop saved a PSD file with a JPG ending.
I didn't know that this is even possible.
(No big worries, I was able to create a JPG, another name, correct size, etc.)

3. I resized a canvas of a picture using width: 200% and wanted the picture to stick on the middle left side. It duplicated itself to the right side with weird pixel issues, as if I used a mask and went over wit. Again there are some parts of a picture repeating itself.

I have screenshots of issue 2 and 3.
And issue 1 and 3 happened on different Macintoshs.
This is the part which Photoshop created with extending the canvas size, pls ignore the arrow. That is part of the original picture:

This is the JPG that is saved with PSD information.
