I always run this command after installing Windows XP and Debian 6.0 on my computer, because for some reason my Debian 6.0 do not recognize the Windows XP on the boot menu.

sudo update-grub

If you want to dual-boot with Fedora, you should install Fedora first since Ubuntu's GRUB picks up all operating Systems on your computer but Fedora's GRUB sometimes doesn't. But since you have Ubuntu installed first, follow these steps to get Ubuntu's grub back:

  1. Boot from a Ubuntu live CD or USB.

  2. Download Boot-Repair and run it.

enter image description here

  1. Select "Recommended repair" and Reboot. You should see UBuntu's GRUB with Fedora and Ubuntu.

If you see the Ubuntu GRUB but did not see Fedora, boot into Ubuntu and open the terminal. Then type sudo update-grub in the terminal and reboot. Fedora will show.

Good Luck!

One suggestion (I use when I have not time to search) is to install the second os bootloader on the partition table (not in MBR) and redirect unto it from the first bootloader.
