no - because i do not care about Fedora defaults in many cases for my machines

no - it is proven that even if it is there it's hard to understand
hide it does not make this better

no, simply because if it is hard to move the cursor down in a
already displayed menu for some users you can be sure that they
never have a chance to learn about the existing older kernel
by hide it

if the affected machine is their only one they also have
no chance to ask for help and are lost

do not give thunderbird a negative karma because some extension
is not updated / rebuilt, file a bugreport for the extension!
