( Please note this code will only work for WordPress 3.1 or lower. 3.2 removes the favorites menu )

function favorites_menu_items($actions) {
    $actions['plugins.php'] = array('Plugins', 'activate_plugins');
    $actions['plugin-install.php'] = array('Plugin Add new', 'activate_plugins');
    $actions['plugin-editor.php'] = array('Plugin editor', 'activate_plugins');
    // asort($actions);
    return $actions;
add_filter('favorite_actions', 'favorites_menu_items');
