Help with GTK themes: Contextual menus

I was hoping to find some help with styling contextual menus within a GTK theme. I am specifically trying to change the color of the hover event of a menu item.

I've defined menu_gradient_a and menu_gradient_b in menu.css, which works fine in some applications, though many others (Firefox, GIMP, etc.) seem to ignore this declaration. I have pawed and scratched through all of the other CSS files associated with the theme, but can't seem to figure this out.

(Edit: Also, .menubar.menuitem:hover, .menubar .menuitem:hover {} in menu.css was my go-to as well, but fussing with that set of selectors proves ineffectual.)

Would anyone have some insight as where I can find the selectors for the global hover state of contextual menu items? I would deeply appreciate it.

I have attached a screenshot example to highlight my issue.
