GreaseMonkey installs into Firefox as an extension, see this:
You may also want to remove the GreaseMonkey script folder in the Firefox Profile Folder where GM stores its user scripts.
Other things that need attention.
Your above posted system details show outdated plugin(s) with known security and stability risks that you should update.
- Shockwave Flash 10.0 r32
- Next Generation Java Plug-in 1.6.0_16 for Mozilla browsers
Update the Java plugin to the latest version.

Update the Flash plugin to the latest version.

"...remove the folder" -- which would be WHERE, exactly??? (it would be nice if you had stated its name and location, since there are about a million sub-sub-sub folders in the Firefox Profile folder)
"You may want to ... " implying that you also may NOT want to... (it would have been helpful if you had told us a reason why we might want to do this, and some possible reasons why it might not be such a good idea to remove the folder)

I have never seen more than 25 folders in the Profile folder and never more than 2 folders deep in those 25 folders - and that was with 85 extensions installed.
The folder is named gm_scripts.
