In Internet Explorer 7, the height of the fullscreen RTE is only about 10 lines. No problem with IE6 or FF. Version of rtehtmlarea is 1.4.2 on Typo3 4.0.2..

I have looked into it for a second. The problem is that IE7 no longer uses the style="height:100%;" value for the <textarea>. It ignores it and uses the default height.
(In the file /t3lib/class.tx_rtehtmlarea_base.php on Line 597 it could be changed into a height using pixels. The only problem then is the fixed height)

Argh, on my installations it's not 10 lines but 1 pixel. I see no RTE at all !!!

I've seen tips to use "height:auto" or "min-height:100%", but neither works for the RTE.

Solution: add "html { height: 100% }"

I can confirm that Martin Kutschker's tip works. I added the line to sysext\t3skin\stylesheets\stylesheet_post.css and now full screen htmlarea works in IE7. This fix should definitely be incorporated into the next bugfix release.

I can also confirm this fix. This should really be in the next release.

Rejoice! The fix has been added to SVN (both 4.1 and 4.0.4).
