Folder View: remove "Refresh" action from context menu

This item exists as a workaround for when the contents of the directory have been updated, but failed to visually refresh as expected. However today this is a relatively rare occurrence, especially with kde-inotify-survey prompting people to increase their number of file watches which generally fixes the issue.

The issue that people do still suffer from is when items are missing due to glitches in the model or the display; we have a number of such bug reports. This action does nothing to resolve that issue, misleading and frustrating users.

The item also consumes space in the menu, whose length we've previously received criticism for.

F5 still refreshes the view if you really do need to do that for some reason.

Here's the desktop context menu now:
