Why should it be configurable? What would that add to the product?
Not asked to me :) but the advantage of the Go-menu is that it displays also the history of the previous session. After closing a tab or after a browser restart the session history under the Back and Forward button is gone but it is still displayed in the Go-menu. So after reading the news on your homepage after a restart, you go back to the things you did before closing the browser. Even a history sidebar can't replace this function.
That's totally unrelated to this bug.
