How to update a JIRA system field description?

Hi,

I'm trying to update the "fix version/s" field default description. When I change the description for the field, the original instructions remain (i.e. "Start typing to get a list of possible matches or press down to select.")

How can the originil instructions for the field be removed?

Thanks for help. Much appreciated!
