If you do not experience the reported problems in the live demos of RadEditor, you should upgrade to its latest version to ensure that it fully support the modern browsers.
If you are currently unable to upgrade, you can remove the HTML mode by setting the EditModes property to "Design,Preview". You can check the HTML content in the Real Time HTML View Module
As to the date and time buttons, you can implement your own custom ones
