Your CSS designates the image for all URLs in the list. Try adding an id that leaves that out. Then assign the last URL with the id
Example: <li#last><a href=''>CONTACT</a></li>

Similar to this - http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8488141/define-css-for-li-id


CSS without the image
#navbar li a last{ 
	display: block;
	padding-left: 20px;
	padding-right: 20px;
	color: #f3f3f3;
	height:30px;
	line-height:30px;
	text-decoration: none;
	margin-right: -10px;
}

Open in new window


Existing CSS
#navbar li a{
	display: block;
	padding-left: 20px;
	padding-right: 20px;
	color: #f3f3f3;
	height:30px;
	line-height:30px;
	text-decoration: none;
	margin-right: -10px;
	background-image: url(/images/menu_separator.png);
	background-repeat: no-repeat;
	background-position: right;  
}

This is not a good practice when you have CSS psuedo classes are there....

Try this...

#navbar>ul>li:last-child a,
#naavbar ul ul li a{
    background-image: none;
}

Open in new window


and then add this... if you want it to work for IE browsers also...

Not satisfied?

Change your css to:

#navbar li:hover li a{
   border-bottom: 1px dotted #CCC;
   color: #fff;    
   min-width: 160px;   
   background:none; /* add background none */
}

Open in new window


No for the last menu add css to the end of your style :

#navbar li:last-child a{
	background:none;
}

Open in new window

@IshaanRawat lets not actively support IE. The biggest problem on the Web is IE and if we developers bend over backwards to accommodate Microsofts nonesense they will continue to dictate the terms.

I make it a policy to specifically not spend 1sec on IE issues - if they come up I tell my clients that the problem is IE which is a browser on the decline and recently in the minority - especially 8 and below - and if any visitor complains then point them to anyone of the free standars complian browser.

Not to dis the work the selecivizr has done - but unfortunately tools like this are actually part of the problem by extending the life of software that should already have died a natural death.
