    Actually there's nothing to fix. That's how it works :)
    There are things like InputRemapper however that let you remap those keys.

    I haven't tried it, but it's supposed to work.

    Why is it like this?

    By default shouldn't F8 be F8

    not Keyboard backlight?

    I am pretty ****ing annoyed by this.

    Glad you got it sorted, just some history..

    In the Mac world, function keys have always been pretty unused, so the default behavior of the laptop keys has always been 'hardware function first', Ffun after.
