Based on my understanding of the Mystic Forge (and the wiki), dumping 4 items into it will generate a new random item with the same rarity (or better, ~20% chance). If four items of the same type are put in, you are guaranteed an item of that type. Resulting item will be about 5-12 levels higher then what you put in.

I did not see any mention of items being dropped down a tier in rarity.

Of 12 mystic forge attempts with 4 masterwork swords of rarity 75 or higher, I got 5 masterwork  swords back, and 7 fine swords back.

I put 4 fine swords back in, got another fine sword. The last 4 fine swords I had granted me a masterwork item.

Has this how the mystic forge has always worked? Did something get bugged in the latest update?

Mystic forge is enough of a dump giving 1 item in return for taking 4 without lowing the rarity over half the time. I've not had much experience with Mystic Forge before, but from what I've read, I wasn't expecting drops in rarity.

The results are level 80 items, yes. The inputs are level 75-77 items.

Never saw or heard about the Mystic Forge giving a lower item instead of higher or same level. This is a bug, and probably a bug with the items you used there, I think you should report the bug to ArenaNet via ingame or support ticket. It happened to me before, that I used 4 rares items (specific ones) trying to get a better item or Exotic, and got nothing in return, that's right, nothing, the Mystic forge just ate my items, and it was always with that specific rare item, of course I reported the bug asap.

I used three different types of Masterwork items. Happened with at least 2 of them.

Did you bother checking that before hand? The blue weapons I was getting had a damage range of 690-762. I put in green items (4 level 76) that have a damage range 697-770. The resulting item I got had lower stats, lower item rarity, and lower merchant value. No upgrade in any single aspect.
