You are using \footnotemark and \footnotetext. I tried this with basic 
LaTeX and both footnotes have 2. Obviously and apparently , these two 
commands cannot follow the numbers. Probably \footnotetext has to follow 

Try this in LaTeX and you will see all the footnote numbers are 3.



     Testing footnotes. I'm writing something here to test \footnotemark 
several features. Testing the second \footnotemark and third \footnotemark.

     \footnotetext{First footnote}
     \footnotetext{Second footnote}
     \footnotetext{Third footnote}


But if you try this one, everything works fine:



     Testing footnotes. I'm writing something here to test \footnotemark

     \footnotetext{First footnote}

     Testing the second \footnotemark
     \footnotetext{Second footnote}

     and third \footnotemark.
     \footnotetext{Third footnote}


So, this has nothing to do with LyX. Why don't you use \footnote instead 
of \footnotemark and \footnotetext?

I am guessing that tcolorbox does not have an automatic page break as 
you would expect. I recommend you look at the manuals of tcolorbox and 
stackexchange pages such as this one
