Here is html code:

<div class="row menu">
<ul class="nav nav-pills pull-right">
<li class="dropdown">
<a href="#" class="dropdown-toggle"
data-toggle="dropdown">
My reports
<span class="caret my-reports-caret"></span>
</a>
<ul class="dropdown-menu">
<li><%= link_to "Performance", performance_reports_path %></li>
<li class="divider"></li>
<li><%= link_to "Account settings", '#' %></li>
</ul>
</li>
</ul>
</div>


My css,that I tried:

.menu .nav-pills .dropdown .open .dropdown-toggle{
background-color: red;
}


Where is problem in my selectors ?

Answer

Here is your problem:

#original.menu .nav-pills .dropdown .open .dropdown-toggle {
    border: 1px solid blue;
}

#suggested.menu .nav-pills .dropdown .dropdown-toggle {
    border: 1px solid red;
}

.open doesn't exist in the element chain.

And here is your fiddle with the border (which had both the .open and no border-style or border-width to style):
