Can an arc fault breaker be used on fluorescent fixtures?

Generally, yes.  However, if the RF filter in the fluorescent ballast has a capacitor connected to ground, it may trip the breaker.  Recommend contacting the fixture manufacturer to verify suitability for a ground-fault or arc-fault protected circuit.
