Possibly Non-Free Add-ons in the Free Addon(s) List

I think the DownThemAll! addon in the IceCat addon list may not be
free despite its free license. Upon installation and restarting of
IceCat, the addon forces a license agreement window (you can find the
text of user agreement window atteched) with "Accept" and "Decline"
options. Declining the agreement pops a warning of "Declining will
cause DownThemAll! to be uninstalled. Continue?" and, if you proceed,
the addon gets uninstalled. [WARNING: When I proceeded with the
uninstallation after the warning, the IceCat crashed with no session
history saved. Be aware of this if you plan to recreate this

I suspect that this "agreement requirement" may prevent the addon from
being free although the context of the agreement doesn't impose any
extra restrictions.

If this is the case, then there needs to be an additional testing
procedure of the screening for the free addon list.
