On Mac the menu bar in under control of the Mac operating system and you can't do anything about this in Firefox. You will have to check in the Mac settings if you can increase the font size.

For other parts in the Firefox user interface there is this pref that you can modify.

You can set layout.css.devPixelsPerPx to 1.0 (default is -1) on the about:config page. Adjust its value in 0.1 or 0.05 steps (1.1 or 0.9) until icons or text looks right. Modifying layout.css.devPixelsPerPx affects user interface and web pages (global zoom). You can use an extension to correct the appearance of web pages.

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.

You can look at Zoom Page WE and NoSquint Plus extension to set a default font size and page zoom on web pages.
