WIndowed Mode & Keyboard in the Background?

Hi! Okay so I'm really bad at explaining things but I'll do my best to. So I play SWToR in Bootcamp since I'm on a Mac so I use an apple keyboard. I'm not really sure if this is relevant, just so you know lol (: But incase it is, I thought I'd start off with that.

So, I play in Windowed mode. I like doing other things like going on Facebook while I have SWToR running in the background behind my browser (Google chrome..again, not sure if that's relevant)

The problem is, when I'm doing something such as typing in a URL address into my browser, it's like I'm typing those letters in game as well, because my character starts walking around or jumping or doing whatever I am doing as if I'm typing in SWToR but I'm actually typing in my browser.

Does that make sense? lol i hope so!! Cause I'm wondering if there is any way to make it so that it will stop? Pretty much, so my typing isn't recognized in the background in SWToR .

Also, I'm not sure if this is an actual SWToR problem or if it's a problem with my computer settings so if it's not SWToR's problem then I'm super sorry I'm just trying to figure out how to get this fixed (: Thanks for your time!!

From other people I've talked to, this is an issue with Boot Camp. I do not believe there is a fix for it, unfortunately.
