Changes made to an .xml configuration file after a Flex application is run in a browser for the first time may not be seen, even after refreshing or clearing the browser cache.
For reference, the Sample Flex Viewer available in the Code Gallery provides a number of sample widgets, for example, BookmarkWidget, that have their own configuration files, such as BookmarkWidget.xml.
These .xml files can be modified to make changes to the widgets, like creating a new bookmark by editing BookmarkWidget.xml.
A Shared Objects file (.sol), which is a collection of cookie-like data, is stored as a file on the computer. In case of BookmarkWidget, the .sol file is here:
C:\Documents and Settings\<loginname>\Application Data\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\23CF2XD5\<machinename>\flexviewer\com\esri\solutions\flexviewer\widgets\BookmarkWidget.swf
Folder 23CF2XD5: This name is randomly generated.
flexviewer: This is the name given to the flexviewer sample folder that is copied to C:\inetpub\wwwroot.
To fix this issue, the Adobe Flash Player Settings can be changed for Local Storage.

The application works properly and changes are reflected even with this error.
