In the utilities dropdown menu, the The "Check for Updates Automatically" menuitem duplicates an existing checkbox in the main options dialog (Advanced -> Update -> Automatically check for updates to -> Add-ons). The menuitem in the utilities dropdown menu should be removed, to avoid cluttering that menu with unnecessary items.
This is confusing (and simple to fix) so we should get it done before the beta. Vaguely [strings]y
The two global settings (autocheck & autoinstall) clearly belong together. Example: the Update tab has both for Fx updates. Why would you split them for add-on updates, with autocheck in the updates tab and autoinstall in the add-on manager? I would suggest putting both in the Update tab. Keeping both in the add-on manager is the next best thing, but splitting them up is the worst alternative.
Removals generally don't hurt us for string freezes - I think this can be a post-freeze blocker?
I agree; would be nicer to have before we ship, but not essential.

Could this removal have any effect on the control sizes?
(In reply to comment #8) > Could this removal have any effect on the control sizes? It is in a popup menu and it can effect the width of it, but not I think in a way that would cause problems for localisers.

Note that this will also fix bug 583668, since that test is being removed.
