Take a look at the AppExchange reviews for the app, it seems to be hitting some issues. The link you gave reveals likely the reason why, both will be doing this by poking into the page definition Salesforce creates, which is bad practice, since in doing so one needs to make some assumptions in their code that will likely break in the future as this is not supported, I've +1 the answer below its the reality sadly and the safest direction. –  Andrew Fawcett Jan 23 at 16:29
@AndrewFawcett App is not working for one of my org with custom domain else it working fine in other orgs without custom domain. –  sf.dev Apr 9 at 19:57

I don't believe there is, from what I recall I've always had to set a static height. Unfortunately the standard page layout and the Visualforce get served up from different domains, so you can't do any cross site scripting to access the Visualforce page's parent and resize the iframe.

The alternative is using a custom VF page to replace the Standard Page Layout (using apex:detail) and appending your Visualforce customizations to the bottom.

I made this work with jquery - it is not very portable, but does seem to work...

I have a case detail page with some inline VF components. I also have a VF page that overrides my Case Detail page but displays the standard case detail via an apex:detail tag. That way, I can change the size of the VF components via JS on the case detail override page. As I say, it ain't pretty but it does work...

<apex:page standardController="Case" extensions="CaseTaskExtension">

<apex:stylesheet value="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.8/themes/base/jquery-ui.css"/>
  <apex:includeScript value="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.6.2/jquery.min.js" />
  <apex:includeScript value="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.8/jquery-ui.min.js" />

<script type="text/javascript">
       var j$ = jQuery.noConflict();


         var commentsize =  '{!ccsize}'; //param from controller
          if (commentsize > 0 && commentsize < 200) {
          commentsize = 200;

  //Replace with Id of VF Page that is used for inline component

         j$('#066i0000000GTnI').css('height', commentsize);


<apex:detail subject="{!case.Id}" showChatter="true" relatedList="true" relatedListHover="true">
