J G,
Wow, I went back and followed my own advice and moved my greasemonkey 
extension directory and found out what bad advice it was: I totally hosed 
firefox. I mucked around in extensions.rdf but couldn't get back up. So 
here's how I got back up:

(I'm going to assume you're using windows. I'm on w2k here at work, but XP's 
going to be pretty close).

1. Go download the firefox 1.06 installer if you don't have a copy lying 
2. open up windows explorer and navigate to Documents and Settings->(your 
username)->Application Settings.
3. Find the Mozilla Directory and either delete it or move it to a temporary 
4. Reinstall firefox.
5. Reinstall all your extensions and themes.

Sorry, man, for my bad advice. Good luck!
