Mouse alignment in flash-based objects is completely wrong

Since I installed FF 8.0 I keep having this problem: whenever I try to use a flash-based object (game, YouTube video etc.), there seems to be a problem with the alignment of the mouse: the position of the pointer in the object frame is different then in the normal window, which means that it's really difficult to click, as the game/video only recognizes the alignment of the mouse in the window and not the "virtual" pointer in the game. Previously, in FF 7, I didn't have any problem with this at all; I tried re-installing Adobe Flash Player, but it didn't work.

Any idea of how to fix this?

Try to disable hardware acceleration.

If disabling hardware acceleration works then check if there is an update available for your graphics display driver.
