WebUiCommonHelper.findWebElements() no longer returns empty list when element(s) not in DOM

## Operating System: Windows 7 Professional

## Katalon Studio Version: 5.8.0

## Katalon Studio logs:

No relevant error messages in the studio logs…

## Environment (for Web testing)

Google Chrome v 69.0.3497.81

## Steps to reproduce

When performing the following assignment:

List elements = WebUiCommonHelper.findWebElements(myTestObject, timeOut);

A WebElementNotFoundException is being incorrectly thrown when the element(s) cannot be found in the DOM:

In previous versions of the studio, the WebUiCommonHelper.findWebElements() method would follow Selenium’s convention of returning an empty list if no matching elements were found.

## Expected Behavior

An empty list should be returned.

## Actual Behavior

A WebElementNotFoundException is thrown.
