Writer’s Hyperlink dialog offers an option to choose frame targets in a dropdown. However, frames are an outdated technology, not recommended to be used since over a decade.
Suggestion: Remove option from the dialog.
The option does not perform any task when chosen.

Do you have a reference? Frames are essential for advanced layouts...
Wrong me, we are talking about the "Further Settings" which allow some HTML stuff. However, adding a clickable button to jump somewhere sounds still desirable to me.

They were used for some time, but I think even when I started learning about HMTL/CSS in 2004 or so they were already considered problematic and advanced layouts were build with tables and then CSS2.
Sometimes, iframes are used today, which perform a different function I think are usually not jumped to with link attributes.
No objection so let's do it (at least remove the UI part to keep legacy documents intact).
Code pointer /cui/uiconfig/ui/hyperlinkmailpage.ui and hyperlinkdocpage.ui, hyperlinkinternetpage.ui, hyperlinknewdocpage.ui
The frame variables needs to be removed from the code as well. See cui/source/dialogs/hltpbase.cxx for this.
