These features aren't self-explaining - each is supposed to be accompanied by some text and an image. You cannot do that with checkboxes...

Ah, makes sense.

Are you considering renaming the addon to something that conveys that it can block more than ads ? :) I know it goes against good marketing sense since the brand has already been established. (Multi Block Plus ?)

Will you display this dialogue to existing users to make sure they don’t miss out on the opportunity to see what else ABP can do?

Totally agree. People have a hard time telling the difference between ABP and "filter lists".

The explanation is spot-on and leaves no room for doubt or anything.

Looks good to me. Your definition of "tracking" is simple and good enough for Joe Sixpack. I'd replace "...the web bugs." with "...these web bugs." though.
Like vinny86 suggested, I'd replace "blocking" with "block". In addition to that, I'd remove the "FREE" part. That is unnecessary and suggests that some parts are not free.

I think that Till added that because in the past surprisingly many people were wondering whether this service is really free and were afraid of walking into a trap. Granted, using terminology like "filter subscription" reinforced that trend...
