#CSS Change the style of the View Selector in lists/libraries breadcrumb

As part of a site branding exercise the breadcrumbs that is displayed when a list or library is open on a view was causing issue. When hovering the current view name its font was bigger and the CSS was not obvious to target.

not good hover:


(font is larger and little down arrow is moving to the left 2 pixels)

good hover: 


Having spent a good hour on that single issue and Googled for solution, here is my finding for later reference.

/* keep same font and position when hovering on view name  */
.ms-ltviewselectormenuheader .ms-viewselector{
.ms-ltviewselectormenuheader .ms-viewselectorhover A{
 border:0px !important;
 font-family: Verdana, Helvetica ;
 color: #0060ad;
 font-weight: normal;
 background-color: transparent;
 font-size: 9px;
 text-decoration: underline !important;
 background-image: none;
/* down arrow to select view */
.ms-ltviewselectormenuheader .ms-viewselector-arrow{
margin:0px 5px 2px 0px !important;
