Apple Mail 7.2 Preferences Won't Open and Signatures Won't Paste Into Documents

I am running Mavericks and when I go to Mail --> Preferences nothing happens.  I press the button but no window opens up with the preferences.  I need this to be able to find out why my default email address keeps changing and why the signatures aren't being pasted into the new documents.

Thanks,

Randal
