EDIT: It seems that you can accomplish your goal according to the method described here. But instead of:

menubar { background-color: red; }

You should put (with 20 replaced by whatever font size you want):

* { font-size: 20pt !important }

But this might be too technical. I am sure jscher2000's answer will work a lot better for you.

Obviously there are still a lot of things I don't know about FF :)

ORIGINAL: Those fonts are controlled by your operating system. If you want bigger fonts in menus (not just those in firefox), you can try this.

Just a disclaimer. I use a different operating system, so I can't verify what is described in the link actually works.

Note that on Mac you likely can't modify the font size of the menu bar as that bar is under control of the Mac OS and can't be modified via an extension or code in userChrome.css. So the above mentioned Theme Font & Size Changer extension will only work for the Bookmarks Toolbar and possibly the bookmarks sidebar.
