Unable to complete backup of firefox profile because of over-length file names in storage sub-directory. Is is ok to simply delete one or more file names which are old URL's and no longer required? Clear History All doesn't clean them out. (Firefox 101.0.1 (64-bit) on WIndows 10) thanks

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Tried a few different things and found that files could be deleted using File Explorer (Windows 10). Then found that using History, Clear Recent History, and selecting Offline Website data that all the files names in Storage / Default disappeared except for a couple of moz-extension+++... which I felt prudent to leave.
