Menu Navigation

The Problem

When header menu page text link pressed, background color appears in page text link area of menu.
Do not need menu button background color to appear when button (page name link area pressed.)

Thank you.

Menu background color appearing and changing on hover, only need text color to change on hover.
Noticed background color changes when I add a sub-menu for pages. How do I deactivate background color hover for header menu and drop down menu?

Theme Options, Main, Element color on hover is adding the background color to menus.
I type #none and the option still defaults to white. How do you specify none for element color on hover?
