Sub Menu Disappears after 3 seconds pause

trying to automate this link: https://www.mintvelvet.co.uk
I am trying to click on a sub category after hovering over a category but the sub category disappears after the delay of 3 seconds is over and hence, I cannot click on it.
Steps to reproduce:

  1. Hover mouse on a category option
  2. Then click on any sub menu(Dress, Tops etc)

I followed the process mentioned in the below link:

but the submenu disappears as soon as the 3 seconds are over.
Sending hotkey, 3 seconds pause did not work.

My version- 2019.9
this worked and the sub menu option “dresses” was clicked. But what if I want to click other options like jeans, leather present at bottom of sub menu?

You need to change the selector of click activity with as per your needs.

I changed the selector with respect to the submenu options I wanted to click and it worked fine on IE. But the same selector is not working on chrome and firefox.
Nelow is the selector I am using:

For Chrome, you have install UIPATH extension in chrome.

And dont use IE selectors, develop freshly in chrome. It will work.
