    Program visible in menu but can not find in "application menu" list

    Thank you for helping.

    I decided to install xubuntu and use the xfce option. I am darn happy with it

    thing is, under the menu and the "internet" section I can see a link to a program I no longer use and have removed all traces of from my home folder. When i click it it says " Failed to execute command "/home/blech/firestorm/etc/../firestorm". (no such file or directory)

    Now this makese sense because I removed it. Thing is I want to remove this from the menu. So, i right clicked the menu tab and chose "properties" then "menu file" and then "edit menu". I then navigated to "internet" but the links are not present thus i cant remove them. I am not sure what else to do and would appreciate any help. Thank you..

    How did you install the program? Since its in your home directory, was it something you downloaded and extracted into your home directory?

    Have a look for a .desktop file in /home/blech/.local/share/applications that is related to firestorm.
