Mouse cursor activates items about 1cm above position
When I move the mouse around ANY web page, contextual items from 1 to 1.5cm above the mouse position are activated. This includes not only items within the web pages, but also tabs and buttons in the main Firefox application. I have been unable to get a screen shot, as Grab deactivates what is happening on the Firefox screen.
I am running Firefox 12.0 on OSX 10.7.4 on a MacBook Pro.
This problem has persisted for about six months and I've had no luck clearing it up despite the following actions: 1. Deleted and re-installed Firefox 2. Deleted Mozilla preferences 3. Disabled add-ons and restored from backups
When I start the browser initially (or after a reboot) Firefox works fine, but after changing web pages a few times, the problem may be seen again. The result is that I can't click on areas within the web page I'm interested in because the items above are the ones activated.
Can anyone help?

-> Start Firefox in -> Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to check if your add-ons/extensions are causing the problems.
- Also see this article -> Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems
Check and tell if its working normally while using Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode.
Try to disable hardware acceleration.
- Firefox > Preferences > Advanced > General > Browsing: "Use hardware acceleration when available"
