IE easily resizes IFrames with code such as this: 
function goSetHeight() {
  if (parent == window) return;
  else parent.setIframeHeight('IFrameName');
But sadly Firefox only partially does. IFrames will expand
but will not contract to proper size when resized with code.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Load an page with an embedded Iframe that's very tall.
2.Open a link within the IFrame that is shorter.
3.You will see a large gap where the IFrame hasn't been resized.
Actual Results:  
Large gaps of empty web space.

Properly adjust height and/or width of IFrames.
This bug was originally reported on Firefox 2.x or older, which is no longer supported and will not be receiving any more updates. I strongly suggest that you update to Firefox 3.6.3 or later, update your plugins (flash, adobe, etc.), and retest in a new profile. If you still see the issue with the updated Firefox, please post here. Otherwise, please close as RESOLVED > WORKSFORME
