They are already downloading it onto their computer in order to run it. 
You are distributing your app (and LiveCode!) to them, which means that 
under the terms of the GPLv3 you must provide them with the complete 
corresponding source code in the preferred form for modification.

The convenient button helps you comply with the license.

Use LiveCode Indy or Commercial, or compile a version of the Open Source 
LiveCode HTML5 engine that doesn't include that piece of code.
