IDLE's class browser is based on stdlib's pyclbr, which processes files.  I have no idea how you install python to not get source files, as source is the default option with the PSF installer.  In any case, this is an install issue, not an IDLE issue.

Since you are asking for the standard behavior, I suspect you must be using an alternate .pyc-only installer. I am therefore inclined to close as 'not a bug'.

If you want further response, please tell us the exact name of the installer and the url where you got it.
