    Are you sure this is fixed? I'm using 2020.3 on a mac. I got the same problem. The Input.Getkey() is not working.

    2018.1.6.f1 on Macbook pro Retina 15' late 2013 : Some inputs still aren't recognize (tab, delete, return, etc). Numbers and letters are detected tho.

    5.3.5f1 Still an issue, on/off at random!

    It's REALLY annoying that one cannot vote for stuff when it re-appears / is not fixed.

    Return key not recognized (Submit) with NGUI input field on Mac OSX web player in 5.3.0f4. Cannot execute multiplayer chat.

    This seems to be a Unity bug not NGUI, yes? Is there a fix?

    I am not getting any key input from unity 5.2.1f1 on my mac el capitan, why is this bug shown as fixed?

    Ok, ignore my previous comment - the bug seems to be in the web player plugin itself, not the build, so rolling back to old editors does not help. Even my old 4.x live versions of the game have the same problem with the latest web player. So we wait for 5.2.2 - any ETA on that?
