As I commented in #31660, I don't think we should remove it. Instead, we could link to a webpage.

FYI: in FF78+ (so next ESR then), the pref [1] no longer disables the menu item, just the notification icon on the navbar [2]

[1] browser.messaging-system.whatsNewPanel.enabled

It seems that acat's #31575 patch disables all of this functionality. Specifically, with that patch in place ToolbarPanelHub.init() is not called, which means that the "What's New?" toolbar item and the app menu item are not visible.
