For whatever reason Memrise requires you to input a space character in some Japanese answers (I'm very much a beginner, so this may not be as weird as I think). However when I have my input set to Hiragana with Romaji typing method, pressing space converts what I've already typed into Kanji even though I have Live Conversion disabled (I think that's what it's doing, they're not Kanji I recognize but I don't know what else they might be). Obviously this is very annoying as I keep getting answers wrong when all I'm missing is a space or I'll have random Kanji in the middle of what I'm typing.

It turns out that holding shift while pressing space will input a normal space character if you have the Shift key action set to Enter Romaji mode.
