We need to revise the copy of the "Block Lists" popup, and add an explanatory link. Images will attached shortly.

pdol mentioned: "It's totally fine to rename these lists while we're at it if we want to avoid confusion between the Strict setting and the Strict list."

The link should be to https://disconnect.me

Here's copy for this component:

Choose the list Firefox uses to block online trackers. Lists provided by Disconnect. [Link to Disconnect: https://disconnect.me]

Level 1 block list (Recommended). Allows some trackers so fewer websites break.
Level 2 block list. Blocks all detected trackers. Some websites or content may not load properly.
