Just updated to Firefox 23... now I cannot see.......

Hi .... I just updated to Firefox 23 on my black macbook running 10.6.8 Snow leopard...... and now when I open the Firefox preferences window I cannot see the very bottom part of the window....and there is no green dot in upper left corner to enlarge the window to possibly see the bottom portion with last setting options...only the red dot to close window or yellow to hide in dock is present...where the green dot to expand window is it's just a blank un-colored dot??.....the window shows only about 1/8 or 1/4 or less of for instance under privacy tab the "location" settings at bottom of window....same thing with other setting tabs ...the window does show the complete purple question mark in left lower corner, but not the complete last preference options at the very bottom... why is this I cannot expand the window to see everything???? !
I hope someone can help please!!!!......thanks, Steve

Hi, thanks to both of you for reply and attempted help, I tried both suggestions as good as I could a few times but no luck fixing issue.... ,also I was told from another person and I did not know that the green expand button for pref window in v23 FF was not supposed to be there and to work as usual to expand the window....is this true??? ...... maybe yes because I tried moving the window around screen and does not move up and around so that would not fix prob either.....I've tried starting in safe mode and removed plist and trashed it as you said and did what what both you said to try above a few times and no luck, still the same.......
'''Maybe I should trash Firefox 23 and all the other older FF apps still on my HD then do a clean install?.... (but leave the apps in trash until I get this resolved??) I noticed when I first tried to install v23 FF last night (I updated from 3.6.? or something...I have not used FF in a long time as you can see!) it downloaded FF v22 first.... then it auto updated to v23???? weird it did that...is it normal?? ....then I dumped the v22 into my trash but did not empty it yet.....I'm still a Mac dummy still after 10+ yrs using them unfortunately....so complex answers kind of go over my head and also reading complex web links do too.... so all suggestions should be written for a Mac dummy like me....hopefully some more simple step by step instructions would be appreciated if possible....
I have quite a few brain farts at my semi-advanced age....to much screwing around during the 60's-early 70's if you know what I mean :-D had a good time living in So. Cal growing up.... but my two or three brain cells that are left are a bit of grey matter now!!! try to forgive my slow and simple mind.....
here's a screen shot of what problem looks like
