How to check position based Recording on Multiple Browsers

Our recording is position based, it gets failed on IE. Because in IE the elements position is changes due to browser settings of zoom.

Is there a reason you are using image-based recognition?

It is highly recommended that you not use image-based recognition due to inconsistencies between different environments, such as what you are finding here. The different browsers, even at the "same" zoom level, render pages slightly differently and you may not be able to compensate for all the differences while still keeping the test reliable and accurate.
