Description

FCEFWebBrowserWindow::OnKeyDown()

InternalCefBrowser->GetHost()->SendKeyEvent(KeyEvent);

is processed on the UE4 GameThread, inside the Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF) it appears to call a system function that needs to be on the macOS Application Main Thread dispatch queue.

Wrapping that call in a MainThreadCall() then moves the problem over to FCEFBrowserApp::TickMessagePump(), CefDoMessageLoopWork() then crashes with the same thread queue problem.

Finally wrapping that call in a MainThreadCall() leaves the WebBrowser widget in an unusable state. URLs are not loaded correctly.

Steps to Reproduce

1) Follow the instructions on:

https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-US/Engine/UMG/UserGuide/WidgetTypeReference/WebBrowser/index.html

To get a simple project and a WebBrowser widget setup.

2) Set the WebBrowser widget initial URL to something like www.google.com
3) PIE and attempt to enter a search term in the Google search box
4) Engine will crash with the specified call stack due to keydown event not processed on macOS main queue in the Chromium Embedded Framework
