Stubborn iframes can be tamed using a simple jQuery trick and a couple of code tweaks. First of all, the iframe shouldn’t have any height or scrolling attributes. Second, there shouldn’t be any styling associated with height or content overflow. Third, use the code below to tame the iframe.

$(document).ready(function() {
    var calcHeight = function() {
        $('#frameId').height($(window).height());
    }

    calcHeight();

    $(window).resize(function() {
        calcHeight();
    }).load(function() {
        calcHeight();
    });
});

Enjoy!
