I had a heck of a time trying to get rid of an swf in firefox the other day. I deleted it from the bin-debug folder and it was still coming up in the browser.
The fastest solution might be to rename the main app file to myApp2 and recompile. The cache won't get tempted if it has a new file name. You can change it back on the next compile.
Sometimes in IE7 I have a cache problem. I hit Ctrl-N to pop-up a new browser window. That seems to refresh everything in the window.
I appreciate it. I tried what you suggested and to no avail its still not working. Now on top of that the app.html and app.swf were deleted from the bin-debug folder when i ran the project clean and now they wont regenerate when trying to run the app. lol just one thing after another. Any other ideas?
Here's how I start up a project.
1. File/New/MXML Project
2. myApp, Finish
4. Flex Build Path
4a. Output Folder: d:\filesystem_path\to\webroot\myApp\bin-debug
4b. Output Folder URL: http://localhost/myApp/bin-debug
5. Run myApp
Re: FireFox not updating swf
I've updated my FireFox launch config. This seems to be updating the cache consistently. (Firebug may be part of the problem)
In the Flex/Preferences/General/Web Browser/ select FireFox, select Edit, in Parameters: -P
The Flex Build still comes up in a FireFox tab but it seems to be fresh.
