And how exactly is it in chrome?
The address bar is auto resized...the less buttons you have in the Navigation Toolbar,the longer the address bar will be(and the other way around)

If you have the address bar next to the search bar, the space between the two bars can be dragged to resize both of them.

Remove the space. Close the customize window.

Put your cursor between the two bars until you see a double side arrow. Click and drag to make it bigger.

You can use this extension to adjust the font size for the user interface:

its a good tool but there's a tool that can only change the address/url bar not the whole GUI?the address bar is the only thing i dont like in firefox because thats too small.

The word you seek is 'higher'.

You have 3 chooses
1.Use userChrome.css to increase the height of the urlbar(and center the text)
2.Use the add-on Stylish for the same thing
3.Use the add-on Smart Location to add this feature and a lot of other cool features(the only downside(if you actually consider this a downside))is the the add-on disables the feature "switch to tab" )

I use this code to change all three bars in Firefox (I use * to set the size for context menus as well):
Code: Select all
#urlbar *,
#FindToolbar *,
#search-container * { font-size:11pt !important; }

#urlbar .textbox-input-box,
#search-container .textbox-input-box,
#FindToolbar .textbox-input-box { font-size:12pt !important; font-family:"DejaVu Sans Mono"; }

You can add the code to userChrome.css below the default @namespace line.
Code: Select all
@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

The customization files userChrome.css (user interface) and userContent.css ( styling websites) are located in the chrome folder in the user profile folder.

currently I'm using this in Stylish
Code: Select all
/*    Global UI font                */
   * { font-size: 12pt !important;   }

I also have 13,14 & 16 point, but they're just mostly-useless leftovers from experimentations

if you're going to use Stylish, remember to disable conflicting code if any from userChrome.css
