Remove Fiberglass Insulation from Windows?

Have some windows with over an inch gap around the sides and they have been packed tight with fiberglass insulation.

Does that have to all be removed before I can use some low expansion type foam? If I push on it there is still room enough for another half inch or more of foam.

Hope that makes sense.

Either material is fine, or you could fill the void with foam, no wrong method!

Great, I'll just push the insulation back and then foam it.
Thanks!
