Web browser focus requires an extra click [bug]

I am currently doing my entire UI through the web browser widget, but it seems that I need to click on the widget once before I can type into the selected input box. Mouse hover and click events, however, are working without an extra click.

This extra click is cumbersome, so I went looking for a solution and found this: Webbrowser Widget focus requires extra click
, which led me to:
Unreal Engine Issues and Bug Tracker (UE-53165)

Where I found that bug UE-53165 was labeled ‘Won’t fix’.

Any ideas on how to fix this? Can the issue be re-opened?
