Place your cursor *before* the field
If you place your cursor before the field, or double click it to select the entire field. Then "Edit->Fields" should become available. That works for me at least, so that should allow "Edit->Fields" to be tested.
Double clicking on it doesn't do anything except to select it. I don't think there is any bug there, it doesn't seem to be the intent that impress fields give the same sort of dialog as in writer. Its a simpler field system.
Thanks for your reminding,and the Edit->Fields also work for me.
