No, this isn't a problem in any of the GTK+ engines, it's a problem
with Firefox's incorrect widget class matching.

Usually it's enough to change the fg[NORMAL] value for the
"murrine-menubar" style (or whatever style is associated with the
GtkMenuBar class); unfortunately, Firefox erroneously uses the GtkMenu
class to render *all* parts of the menu (including the menubar).

A "solution" (workaround) is to set the same fg[NORMAL] in the
"murrine-menubar" *and* "murrine-menu" style sections. I don't have
access to your theme at the moment, but if you use a light menu
background, then it will need to be darkened in order to accommodate
this workaround, as the menu text will be the same colour as the
menubar text.
