VNC-Console - keyboard issue

This is an issue in every browser - I tried Opera (Proxmox doesn't work at all), Chrome and Firefox (same problem as described - can't use tab because browser hijacks keys - impossible to go through freebsd installer, for example).

Also, TigerVNC as advised by wiki does not work -

So here's my solution:
* Download /usr/share/vncterm/VncViewer.jar to your local machine
* On your server, run the following command - replace 117 by your CTID
nc -l -p 5900 -c "qm vncproxy 117"
* On your computer, run:
java -jar VncViewer.jar HOST localhost USER root@pam
* When prompted, enter root@pam as username and your root password as password
* Enjoy remote console without browser on any operating system you like
