Editing drop down menus in Google Chrome? Really?

So I have been trying to edit a drop down menu in Google Chrome and whenever I try to inspect the element of the drop down item after a few seconds the element hides and I can’t see visually how it looks.

How do you guys edit your drop down menus effectively?

In the right hand panel you can choose to show an element as it appears in its hover state. I don’t find it always works perfectly with dropdowns, but it’s pretty good.

Another option (which I tend to use) is make the dropdown visible (that is, not hidden off screen) so that I can see what changes are being made. Then, at the last moment, you restore the off-screen style.
