Cinnamon menu applet does not work



I installed Manjaro 17.03 Cinnamon a couple of week ago and after opening the menu editor in the Configure option with the right click with the mouse on the menu applet last Friday the does not show the applications any more. I was trying to add some applications to the menu.
I could not found any answers in either the forum or in internet. I reinstalled Manjaro hopping that the problem is in the root folder but I think it is in the home folder, because I did not format the partition. Anyone can tell me where to finde the problem?


I run rm -rf menus/ dconf/ in the /home/.config folder and the global menu appeared again.



I wonder how this came to be (and if it is actually a wider bug)
