Appreciate the assistance. Your second post was helpful in that you noted there were two 'Menu Item' sections to change.
I was able to eliminate the 'fuzziness' of the 'disabled' menu item by going to Edit Controls -> Edit menus and Menubars ->Menu Item (first 'Menu Item' on left pane) -> Extra Settings Tab (at bottom of window) and enable 3D Effect for Menu Items. Seems to me it should be the opposite to remove 'fuzziness', however, I don't want to complain as it works.
If only these changes would effect drop down menu's in Google Chrome, I'd be set.
