Not all fields can be edited in this manner.  For example, the system-generated fields labled status, resolution, security level, created date, and updated date are not editable by the user.  Also, some fields such as due date do not appear on the issue screen if they were not set initially.  If you don't see a field that you want to edit on the issue details screen, or the pencil does not appear when you hover, try the "editing all fields at once" method described above to make the change.
