Cell phones do not work everywhere; how do I complete my account?

How does one complete the Firefox registration, without a cell phone?

Since many places in the USA do not have cell coverage, there needs to be an alternative - a work-around.

Your Firefox Account is already completed when you get to the page to add a mobile device. Connecting a mobile device to the Firefox Account is optional and you can close this page. Maybe this should be made clearer because there is a lot of confusion possible that you should add a mobile device.

A Firefox Account doesn't require a cellphone number. I don't even think that it's possible to link one to your account, since it serves no practical purpose for the account.

To complete your account, you need to follow the activation email that is sent to you when you create an account.

The only feature that would involve a mobile device (and it's entirely optional) is two-step authentication. Even still, that doesn't require a phone number, since it uses an authentication mobile app instead.

Hope this helps.
