Wait a second, are you saying that the extension is distributed without
making source code available?   :-|

That would be an ugly surprise for me!  :-(

them), but I thought the upstream author wanted the User Agent Switcher
to be Free Software.

Have you got in touch with Chris Pederick?
Have you already got confirmation that no source code is being made
