When doing a Bible Word Study on the word "meditate" in Joshua 1:8 using the Lexham English Bible, the results were different between the locally installed version and the online edition (app.logos.com). Below are the results side by side.  Local install on the left, browser on the right. 

Both affirm that the Hebrew term occurs 25 times, but the listing of the English translations is different.  In the local version, the first group lists "meditate" occurring 5 times, while the online version says 3 times.  The local version says the next most common translation, "utter." occurs 3 times, while the online version does have any entry in that form.  

Is there a reason for these discrepancies?

I can't explain the differences but I can reproduce what you are seeing.

I see that the set of results in the second set on the left are present in the right but in different sections - uttering (even though Prov 8:30 isn't translated that way) and will utter.

I also note see that the gloss presented in the middle of the translation ring is different in both cases

The mobile app gives very similar results to the desktop.

I suspect there is something wrong with how the web app is working but I can't work out exactly what

I had not mentioned that I also found that the mobile app produced the same results as the locally installed version.  Clearly, the web app is the anomaly.
