For security reasons, modern versions of Greasemonkey execute each script in a "sandbox", which isolates trusted user script code from potentially malicious web page code.

Documentation for Component.utils.Sandbox[1] may eventually show up on the Component.utils page, but it not there now. There is documentation for Components.utils.evalInSandbox which gives an example of Sandbox usage.
