Can I load firefox on my computer without providing an email address? I want to load it onto a computer that currently had absolutely no personal information.
Having recently been a victim of ransomware I have configured a computer that has no personal information on it at all. It will be used exclusively for browsing the web and my other computers that have data worth stealing will not be used for browsing. I wanted to load Firefox because it reputed to be the least needy with respect to personal information. I don't need to get any emails from mozilla.org and don't intend to send you any. Can I just load the browser without providing an email address (microsoft edge did not require one)? So far the installer seems unhappy if I don't provide the requested email address.
Additional System Details
none right now. Just Windows 10 on a newly wiped laptop.

If you are talking about sync, sync is an option. Shut down sync from here.
