Try using inspect element to find the css.  You can play around with the settings, and not worry about hurting anything. Once you refresh the page the original setting will come back. If you find the css element, and make the changes to your liking, you can copy them, and paste them into you custom css in the admin panel.

This sets the height of the main block that lists the users.

.ow_chat_list {

    height: 320px;

This sets the width of the block in the bottom right corner of the window.
.ow_chat_block .ow_bot_panel {
    width: 252px;}

This changes the height of the active chat block. The one when you are talking with someone.
.ow_chat_in_dialog {    height: 250px;}

I found all of these using Inspect Element. There are some youtube videos on how to use it. I like Inspect Element with Firebug in Firefox myself. It gives more options.
