From bug 1512302 comment 0:

Bug 1458308 changed the way that the Update settings are stored on Windows. When a user selects "Automatically install updates" or "Check for updates but let you choose to install them", that value is stored in an installation-specific manner, not a user-specific manner. However, there is currently no visible indication that this is how it will work.

This could be confusing to users. We should add some text explaining this.

We ported bug 1458308 in bug 1510798.

This is a port of https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/84c61304b73d
What do you think about "updateCrossUserSettingWarning.description"? Should we shorten this a bit? If yes, do you have a proposal?

I also cleaned the markup a bit by shortening some lines.

Best is, you don't use the latest m-c tip because of bug 1523074.
