Based on the fact that you want to add items on the same menu then I'd say you should add it to the same menu :)

Go to your qa-theme.php file and add this:

function doctype() {
   qa_html_theme_base::doctype();
   $menu_items = array(
      'menu1' => array(
         'url' => 'http://www.google.com',
         'label' => 'Google!',
      ),
      'menu2' => array(
         'url' => 'http://www.yahoo.com',
         'label' => 'Yahoo! (Yes, it still exists!)',
      )
   );
   $this->content['navigation']['user'] = array_merge($this->content['navigation']['user'], $menu_items);
}

This will insert the new menu items after the 'login' link when the user is not logged in and after the logout link when the user is logged in.

This will create similar-looking fields as the theme is responsible for the CSS. However, if you still want to override some CSS from the theme you can do so with the CSS classes .qa-nav-user-menu1 and .qa-nav-user-menu2.

Screenshot for the Classic theme with this change on the HOT page.

it is hiding only when clicking on menu items like hot, tags etc

Have you tested this as I suggested? As I mentioned before, it is working for every page and not a selected group of pages. Test it on any other theme and you'll see it is working. I added a screenshot showing you the change. If it is not working on your particular theme, you should correct the theme. I can't do much more about this issue

You've added the code I've given you inside the " if (isset($categories)) { ... }". Actually a lot of code is in there and that does not make sense. Should look like this (pay more attention to the curly braces):

function doctype() {
    qa_html_theme_base::doctype();
    $categories = isset($this->content['navigation']['cat']) ? $this->content['navigation']['cat'] : null;
    if (isset($categories)) {
        foreach ($categories as $name => $category) {
            unset($this->content['navigation']['cat'][$name]['note']);
        }
    }
    $menu_items = array(
        'menu1' => array(
            'url' => 'http://www.thegeneralstuff.com/listuploads',
            'label' => 'Uploads',
        ),
        'menu2' => array(
            'url' => 'http://www.thegeneralstuff.com/sitemap.xml',
            'label' => 'Sitemap',
        ),
        'menu3' => array(
            'url' => 'http://www.thegeneralstuff.com/feedback',
            'label' => 'Feedback',
        ),
        'menu4' => array(
            'url' => 'http://www.thegeneralstuff.com/we-are-hiring',
            'label' => 'We are Hiring',
        )
    );
    $this->content['navigation']['user'] = array_merge($this->content['navigation']['user'], $menu_items);

    $anonymous = qa_lang_html('main/anonymous');
    if (isset($this->content['q_view']['who']['data']) && strpos($this->content['q_view']['who']['data'], 'class="qa-ip-link">' . $anonymous . '</a>') !== FALSE) {
        $this->content['q_view']['who']['data'] = $anonymous;
    }

    // Code below makes no sense!
    if (isset($this->content['a_form'])) {
        $a_form = $this->content['a_form'];
        unset($this->content['a_form']);
        $this->content['a_form'] = $a_form;
    }
}

Also note my other answer on removing category numbers has another function to add to the qa-theme.php. You're only removing the first level category counts.
