Sorry for the double post, I think I have some news to share that is worth while the thread notification. The florence developer François Agrech mailed me again along with request to post his answer here.
You are probably affected by another bug:

This bug is well known but the root cause is not identified yet as it
is not easy to reproduce. It's probably linked to xtest but I haven't
been able to trace it back to its source.
It seems to happen when there are exactly 2 keyboard layouts
configured in the system. Only one or 3 keyboard layouts seem ok but 2
is not ok for some reason. This is what I observed but I'm not sure

You can fix your problem with that command:
Or maybe by removing one layout or adding another in your system (I'm
not 100% sure it will fix the issue but it might)
After I tried setxkbmap de

headed to the end of the file and added setxkbmap de
to it, then save and exit. This fix is now permanent including reboots.

After enabling accessibility, you need to reboot your desktop
environment and auto hide mode should be working.
I hope this helps, please tell me if that fixed both your problems.
If your problem are fixed, I would appreciate if you could post the
solution on the raspberri forum as it might help other people with the
So I installed at-spi and created a file named autostart in ~/.config/lxsession/LXDE/ with the content:
Now the florence auto hide feature should work as the at-spi daemon is running on my system. But sadly it doesn't work and I can't find a guide, on how to configure at-spi-registryd. I get the following warnings:
Can anybody help?
