The Web browser widget does not appear to accept keyboard input until clicked. Even when opening a web page that has a text box that is selected by default (such as in the test project provided) and "Set Keyboard Focus" has been called for the web browser widget

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Download attached project
  2. Open project
  3. Play in editor
  4. When web browser is loaded try to type into the text box (without clicking)

Result: The text box on the web page appears to have focus but does not until it is clicked
Expected: After providing the web browser widget with keyboard focus, it would accept input from the keyboard
