Gene, the original poster is asking about the accessibility of
notifications in general. Coming back to the question, if you
simply want to close
a particular notification, alt plus c will do. Sometimes,
notifications tent to appear in Firefox, such as to allow an
installation, which require immediate attention. In those
cases, I could
interact with those notifications by shift tabbing couple of
times from the address

not sure you can continue to use the site after entering the
information. The messages are shown on a specific part of the
screen intended for such messages and they just sit there if
they don't require a response. You can just ignore them. You
can go through the trouble of finding and closing them, but
there is no point. They will be replaced by new messages when
a new message is generated. In most cases, you can just stop
them by taking another action you want to take or in the usual
way of pressing control.
At least, that's my experience.
As far as not remembering
passwowrds, you can turn the remember password feature off.
In the security section of options, you can tab to a checkbox
for remembering passwords and uncheck it.

Subject: [TechTalk] notifications in Firefox
When browsing in Internet Explorer,
notifications frequently pop up. They can easily be read with
the screen-reader-independent keystroke alt+n. When using
Firefox, I often get notifications, such as requests to store
the password I just entered, which I don’t tend to do, even
though there may well be no reason not to do so. But I know
no way to dismiss those messages, which often repeat several
times. Can anybody shed any light on this?
