Oddest thing - asking for a "code scanner on your Firefox app" to complete set-up

I initially just wanted to get some ad-blocking program to keep down the volume of all the flashing ads showing up on webpages. I'm working with a new laptop computer, and my old laptop had been "tweaked" with some Mozilla extensions (?) to address this, and I wanted to get the same on my new laptop. So I opened the application menu - the 3 horizontal bar icon, top right. First thing at the top, it asks me to sign in. Honestly, I don't think I ever did this. So I used one of the many secondary email addresses I use for this type of thing, put in a password, and created an account. Up popped a screen saying, "This Firefox is connected". Then down below, it said, "Sign in to Firefox on another device to complete set-up". Ugh, really? Ok, fire up the old laptop and open up Firefox and sign in using the same email and password. Here's where I get lost - up pops a screen that says, "Connect another device". Then down below it says, "Open the code scanner on your Firefox app and show code when ready." And there's a "Show Code" button down below this. But I'm hesitant to press it, because I don't know what my code scanner is, I don't have a flatbed scanner (if that's what they're talking about), my phone is broken (part of the reason I have a new laptop today), and I don't see any Firefox apps called "code scanner", and nothing in the help community that I can find about code scanning. So what the hell? I can't be the only person who's gone down this rabbit hole...

Using Sync is optional. You can close the tab once you have created the Sync account if you do not want or can't add a mobile device. Note that Sync isn't meant to be used as a backup and with only one device usefulness is limited.
