A1 returning "username/password incorrect" messages on websites

I can't find other posts with this problem so I hope I don't show my ignorance here, but I can't believe I am the only one...
I recently purchased an IdeaPad A1-07 running Android 2.3.4. I attempted to update the system right out of the box, but the updater reported that I was up to date, so that should be set (I would think...). I downloaded the Netflix app from the Andriod app store (the A1 did not include it preloaded), and attempted to launch it. It launched fine into the login screen, but when entering the login info, the app returned a incorrect username/password error. I confirmed the info by logging in on through my PC to the Netflix site. I un-installed then re-installed the app with the same result. I then attempted to go to the website through the A1 browser and login there. Same result. Panicking, I attempted to use the A1 browser to login to FaceBook. Same result.
Here is the strangest part: I attempted to login to the same websites using the browser on my HTC Android Incredible 2 running Android 2.3.4, and was able to login in successfully to both sites.
Does anyone know what is going on here and how to fix it? This is a real deal breaker for me since I purchased this tablet specifically to use  with sites like Netflix and FaceBook, and I really don't know what else to do other than to try to return it and get a refund. Please help!

Success! The GO keyboard app pre loaded by Lenovo wasn't the problem, but the input settings (Auto Capitalization, display suggestions, auto complete, auto space and key correction) were. Display suggestions probably wasn't part of the issue, but its just plain annoying, so I turned that off as well. I suspect that one of the other "auto" features was slipping in a character or space or two behind my back. I turned them all off, and no longer have an issue. I suspect that it was only one of them, but I would have had to run multiple experiments to narrow down the culprit, and I really don't want to bother. None of those things help me more than they hinder me anyway.
Find the settings under: settings/language & ketboard settings/Go keyboard for Lenovo/input setting. Good luck!
