Make RFT recognize two submit buttons with the same name on Edge

RFT 10.2.1(RFT perspective and simplified script) + Chronium Edge

We migrated to RFT 10.1.2 to verify Edge because IE will EOS in June 2022.
Following exception occurs in web application page which has two submit buttons with the same name in playback using Edge, and can't continue the test.
This script was correctly working when used IE.

We need to change main browser from IE to Edge asap before EOS of IE.
Please, make RFT recognize two submit buttons with the same name on Edge.

    Thank you for the RFE. We were able to provide the descriptive code for this enhancement. Therefore, no code implementation.
