When you remove an extension, the related preferences are preserved in case you intended to reinstall it.
When you are in about:config, you can clear those by using right-click > Reset on each one. (I find it fastest to right-click with one hand, and tap the r key with the other.)
You won't see them vanish from that tab, but after Firefox updates your preferences file on disk, if you open about:config in a new tab, they should be gone.
Extensions that do not have a "Remove" button are installed by other software and are not under control of the Firefox extension manager.
Such globally installed extensions are usually found via a registry scan or are installed in a location that Firefox scans for installed extensions.
Extensions installed this way need to be removed via the settings (options/preferences) of the program that has added this extension or you need to uninstall this program via "Control Panel > Programs".
In Firefox you an only disable such an extension.
