    Greasemonkey is an extension which you download for Mozilla Firefox.

    It allows you to customise the way you view web pages by using javascript coding. Basically, allows a script written CSS/Java to work on firefox and "run" as a program.

    It can be downloaded here:

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/748/

    Or if you want a more detailed mumbo-jumbo explanation go here:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greasemonkey

    Oh and I can't help myself:

    Ask a silly question, get a silly answer.
    Say a stupid comment, get a stupid response.

    ;)

    Your version of FF is out of date, not greasemonkey ;)
