I thought you were using Fedora 9?  You don't need to add an editor
program, it should be possible to edit menus just by right-clicking on
the top of the menu.

I don't know why some computers would be different than others.  But the
default menus are set up from .desktop files from, at least,
within /usr/share/applications/ (though there's other places, too),
where you can look through them to see if there's any "hidden" or
"OnlyShowIn=Gnome" settings.  Hint:  locate .desktop

Personalisations are stored inside your homespace, which will override
the system ones.  Look in:  ~/.local/share/applications/

Some .desktop files won't be used directly for menus, they'll be used by
other things, that make use of the same format.
