That happened to me. Just quit Firefox and reboot your computer -- in
my case this was enough to solve the problem.


Alas, this did not work for me, but thanks for the reply.


Had exactly the same problem, with XFCE. There is a package called
caribou-antler-0.4.1-3.fc16.x86_64
Description :
This package contains caribou keyboard implementation

I killed the process and the keyboard disappeared.

However, my firefox is also chattering incessantly; in an attempt to
stop it, i went to about:config, changed a configuration item; I think
it was accessibility:usetexttospeech, and changed it from default to
false.

Then any attempt to type anything into the URL bar caused firefox to
lock up. I rebooted the computer, and the chattering is back, but at
least I can type URLs.

I do not have either of these problems with four other computers, just
one at work. I'd be grateful for any suggestions.

Solution: see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=805514,
which points to https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8589, which
indicates that you need to disable GNOME Services. This is a check
box:
Settings -> Session and Startup -> Advanced [tab] -> uncheck Launch
GNOME services on startup.

After logging out and back in, my Firefox is mute and caribou keyboard
free.
