Hummmmm, dangerous.  The ignitor opens the gas valve and lights the gas.  If it will not light sometimes and you get gas without the burner lighting I would start by replacing the ignitor and cleaning the burner holes and cross over slit, could be clogged with junk.   The 50* off is probably a different problem, look at the back of your thermostat knob, most of them are adjustable and can re-set the knob to match the difference.

I agree, sounds like a weak igniter. They glow, but they need to draw a certain amperage to bging the gas valve on.
