I found a folder named "Staged" in the extension folder in the profile folder.
It contains these folders

{32af1358-428a-446d-873e-5f8eb5f2a72e}
{d320c473-63c2-47ab-87f8-693b1badb5e3}
{DDC359D1-844A-42a7-9AA1-88A850A938A8}
{e58d3966-3d76-4cd9-8552-1582fbc800c1}
clearcache@michel.de.almeida
DownRightNow@example.org

jid1-KKzOGWgsW3Ao4Q@jetpack
marcoagpinto@mail.telepac.pt
Tab-Session-Manager@sienori
treestyletab@piro.sakura.ne.jp

All these folders are empty. What are, or what were they? And, can I simply delete them?

Thank you

Those might have been temporary folders created for extension updates. If they are empty, I can't think of a reason to keep them. But you might let Firefox shut down fully before removing them just in case.

I don't have that folder in a fairly new profile (< 2 months old).
