CSS dropdown menu cross-browser

My CSS dropdown menu behaves strange in different browsers. It works fine in Chrome (Windows) but there are issues in Firefox and on Android.

Firefox:
Dropdown menu opens up to the right of the menu item instead of below.
Also, the dropdown menu is not in line with the menu item because of the padding I used in ‘#naviagtion ul li ul’ to prevent it from clipping with ‘#navigation ul li’. Removing the padding makes the menu items to thin and I can’t think of any ways to fix it.

Android:
When displaying the dropdown menu there are white gaps between the elements in my the dropdown menu and I have no idea where those come from.
I have know idea about how Android handles that so I don’t know if it’s normal or if the code isn’t correct.

This is the code: https://jsfiddle.net/5rd2czfL/

HTML

<div id="navigation">
<ul>
    <li><a href="#">MENU L1</a></li>
    <li><a>MENU L2</a>
        <ul>
            <li><a href="#">Sub 1</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">Sub 2</a></li>
        </ul>
    </li>
    <li><a>MENU L3</a>
        <ul>
            <li><a href="#">Very long Sub 1</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">Very long Sub 2</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">Very long Sub 3</a></li>
        </ul>
    </li>
    <li><a href="#">MENU L4</a>
    </li>
    <li><a href="">MENU L5</a></li>

    <li class="menu-right"><a href="'">MENU R1</a></li>
    <li class="menu-right"><a href="#">MENU R2</a></li>
</ul>
