First question - how many miles are on the vehicle and transmission? Second question - when was the last clutch replacement service?

The downshift and resulting out-of-gear condition could be related to these:
-broken or malfunctioning transmission shifter cable or linkage
-manual trans gearing and related mechanicals are worn or faulty,
-the master/slave cylinder is worn / faulty,
-pressure plate is worn / faulty
