User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:58.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/58.0
Build ID: 20171017220415

Steps to reproduce:

In the latest Nightlies in Tablet mode on a Windows 10 touchscreen device: 
    -Tap the Bookmarks button
    -Tap the Overflow button
    -Tap a folder on the Bookmarks Toolbar
    -Tap the Show more bookmarks button on the Bookmarks toolbar

Actual results:

The menus opened when each of these are tapped are smaller and harder to tap with your finger compared to the rest of the UI. 

Expected results:

These menus should have more spacing between items so they are easier to use on touchscreen devices and match the rest of the Firefox UI when using touch. 

I initially mentioned Bookmark folder menus in Bug 1389094, but that mainly addressed the Bookmarks and History sidebar, so I thought I'd file a separate bug for these menus.

I don't have access to touch hardware this morning to confirm, but this sounds like a good idea. Leaving ni? on myself to attach a screenshot later

While these look like related issues on the surface, I think each of them requires enough work that we should split this off into separate bugs.
