I'm on Chrome and I had this issue. It's definitely not my keyboard/browser. I pressed the insert key several times and couldn't get it to go away. I switched over to Gmail to compose an email and it wasn't in insert mode.
The only solution I could find was to logout of JIRA and log back in again. That seemed to make it go away.
