[SOLVED] Can't resize VM's Console without any OS (Operating System)

I haven't been able to achieve this yet. Im running Proxmox Virtual Environment 3.4-6/102d4547 (PVE) and every time I try to install a new virtual machine, during installation, I can't resize the NoVNC Console to see the full screen of the Guest OS. I have tried this with Manjaro 16.06, Windows 7 and Windows 8. There is no way to resize the screen. Every time I do this, the screen resizes back to the prior resolution. The screen only shows me ~45% vertical and ~80% horizontal (Windows OS), with Manjaro 16.06 the screen takes a huge resolution size (to big for my display). Im using 1366x768 (host OS to connect PVE through Mozilla Firefox). ¿Is there a way to manually specify the screen resolution's guest OS through bash or something?

**Breaking news: I tried right now to do this with Google Chrome and I now can see (with a little struggle) the full Guest OS's screen. The browser's windows continues resizing back though. This is with Manjaro 16.06 as Guest OS, haven't tried with Windows.
