I'm running version 4.8 on Fedora 16. System (including xfce4) is up to date. With the installation of Firefox 11.0 there's a keyboard popup associated with fill in fields (such as the Subject field here). This is an interaction between xfce and Firefox -- demonstrated by running Gnome3 instead.
I really need to quash this damm popup. Any suggestions? (There does not appear to any relevant settings)
I too run XFCE 4.8 on F16 on both my desktop and my laptop and I've never had any trouble with filling in fields in Firefox 11. I have, however, seen a question about this on a Fedora mailing list, so you're not the only person affected.
