Description of problem:
Firefox doesn't start with some gtk criticals when the "Screen reader" or "Screen keyboard" accessibility setting are on.
strace shows the process opening libgail.so from gtk2
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
no change with firefox-33.1-1.fc22.x86_64
Can you provide me some reproduction steps for it? I'm unable to launch the on-screen keyboard. Also, to you run gnome-shell or something else?
Yes this is under gnome-shell.
- go to control center -> Universal access
- enable "Screen Reader" or "Screen Keyboard"
Try to start firefox.
set GNOME_ACCESSIBILITY=1 does the trick.

Proposing as an Alpha blocker, conditional violation of https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_22_Alpha_Release_Criteria#Required_applications - "It must be possible to run the default web browser and a terminal application from all release-blocking desktop environments." - when a11y is enabled, somehow, which seems relatively easy to do.
A workaround which temporary disables ATK in Firefox just hit the rawhide, package firefox-34.0-8.fc22.
