The profile manager UI contents don't scale to hi-dpi resolutions (on my Retina MBP) but the window size does.
This means that not all parts of the profile manager are visible on my hi-dpi screen (Retina MBP), making it partially unusable.
I use the profile manager every day on my Retina MacBook Pro, and I've never seen this.

What version(s) of OS X do you see this on?  What version(s) of Firefox?  Do you have STR?  Does it happen both with and without an external monitor attached?
Oh, interesting.
This is with: 
* OSX 10.9.1
* Retina MBP screen & external 24" Dell in the office
* m-c build from this week
* only happens with the external monitor attached
I just tested with a setup very close to yours, and I still don't see this bug.

* OS X 10.9.1
* Retina MBP with NEC Multisync LCD2190UXp (non-Retina) arranged to the left
* Today's m-c nightly

How, exactly, are you running the Profile Manager?  I'm running it at startup (after having run firefox -ProfileManager from the command line and unchecked "Don't ask at startup").  I don't actually know of any other way to run it ... but I thought I should ask.

Sometimes it makes a difference where you "arrange" your external monitor (in the Displays system pref panel).
Does your problem go away if you reboot your MBP :-)
* Re-arranging the screens doesn't make a difference
* Moving the dock from the MBP screen to the Dell results in the attached too big dialog instead
* Moving the dialog between screens doesn't change things
* ... i'll report on rebooting later, not good right now :)
Oh, and i'm just running using: ./mach run -P
Which ends up doing: <objdir>/dist/NightlyDebug.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox -no-remote -foreground -P
> Moving the dock from the MBP screen to the Dell results in the

This is the key.  With it I see something like your bug, but only
after I do the following:

1) Start FF (today's m-c nightly) by double-clicking on it.

   Since I've enabled the Profile Manager as per comment #3, I see it
   first, on the non-Retina display -- but it's not yet displayed
   incorrectly.

2) Drag the Profile Manager window to the Retina display, then click
   Exit (that is, don't start FF).

3) Double-click on FF again. 

   Once again I see the Profile Manager on the non-Retina display.
   But this time it's twice as wide and high as it should be -- though
   its UI elements are displayed at the correct size.

This is definitely a bug, but probably low priority.  If (as I
suspect) it's an old bug, the fact that it hasn't been reported til
now means very few people see it.

But please do look for a regression range.

No need to bother :-)
