Locate CSS coding at specified point on webpage quickly

Dear Experts,

When I answer CSS question on EE, I  will first look into author's webpage and look
into the issue view point location such as submenu under menu  that is similar to
the issue at this EE thread link
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web_Development/Web_Languages-Standards/CSS/Q_28479835.html

When I answer the question, I will go to firefox developer tool and use "Inspect element"
to find out the exact  issue location, and I could not find out the exact CSS file or CSS location. So, I need to view page source to find out or guess where the issue CSS location is
that is really slow to answer the question.

My question is that How can I find the exact CSS issue location code quickly  on
Firefox or Chrome browser developer tools ?

Why I will use using "Inspect element" on FF developer tool can Not locate the exact
CSS code on such issue tag when mouse hover on the issue spot on the webpage
Or there is other way to find out CSS issue code on such tag quickly ?

What tools besides experts experience can answer the question as fast as it  did
in the previous link.

Please advise

When using Firebug, select the element, click the Style tab dropdown arrow and click hove/active/focus and that will show the css for the various states
Don't think you can do that with the native Element Inspector in FF

Change the z-index on the .yith_magnifier_zoom_wrap {...} class to 1

/assets/css/yith_magnifier.css

The answer from your thread, I could Not find the location . Where is it  at which tag ?
I could Not see the CSS code even I tried mourse right-click to the code page under the
webpage

That's because the image doesn't really exist where it is, right click the image when you get the zoom happening and inspect element and then move up the node tree to get the container.

If you can provide small your search practice instruction to search  CSS issue location on FF developer tools that will be really good

It's not an :hover issue, the image zoom container is higher in the z-index.

There's no special secret to it, just inspect the element and work back or forth til you find the relevant element css that needs to be fixed.
There is no one way fits all since every website is different, it's a case of practise makes perfect when you just know what is wrong
