Fonts look too small presently and should be of larger size when user is in the large icon mode which is by default. See Google Chrome for comparison.

I agree...but not only with large icons. In addition, I think URL font type could be also new :)

dugar.siddhartha@gmail.com, asking the release team to track a bug is not the way you express your interest in seeing it fixed. If you'd like to see this bug fixed, you can help out with a patch or you can wait for it to be confirmed, re-designed by the UX team, and implemented by the Firefox coders.

With the UI changes planned for Firefox 10, please consider this.
CSS code to do this:

#navigator-toolbox[iconsize=large] .urlbar-input-box,
#navigator-toolbox[iconsize=large] .searchbar-textbox {
  font-size: 15px !important;
}

I was just thinking about this the other day, if all the toolbars had larger font size option(s) that would be helpful particularly when using FF on larger screen sized devices like TVs (24-55in).

The Windows 10 mockups are showing a bigger font size for the location bar.
