hi!

a nice way to do that (works both in Moz/NS6+) is this way:

redefine the cols / rows properties in the framesets.

example JavaScript:

parent.document.getElementsByTagName('frameset')[0].rows='200,*';
 or
parent.document.getElementsByTagName('frameset')[0].cols='250,*,300';

or an alternative way would be:
parent.document.getElementByTagName('frameset')[0].setAttribute('rows','200,*');

feel free to address the frame via your favorite addressing (by name or via getElementById...)
