I do NOT want to sync. I purchased a new computer for work and Firefox will not let me log in and leave it not synced to other devices

When I try to Sign In on our new work machine a red box pops up that reads.

Primary account email required for sign-in.

Firefox will not let me log in at all.

The email is the primary address/account for that work machine.

I don't want social media or other distractions installed on this machine at all. Except for accounts specifically for promoting work. I also don't want all the ton and tons of decades old book marks. And I definitely don't want the email address that everyone I know, family or otherwise is pinging me on. I just need to log in, buckle down, focus and work, please.

I'm just trying to log in. Not sync to any other browser and have a few select bookmarks useful for me for work.

Thank you

P.s I couldn't even log in to help to ask this question. I had to log in to an old mac with a broken screen that is being used as an interface to removable storage drives. To even ask this question.

I gave up and deleted Firefox.

I don't even know how it decided to not let me log in or knew that I had other ancient macs with Firefox on them.
