Try Refreshing the Page and Clearing Cache.
A change to the website may not appear immediately if the page was already loaded in your browser. Cache stores information from a webpage in your browser to improve the overall speed. FLEX uses a caching system called E-Accellerator that “caches” a page for three minutes.
Allow three minutes for the change to appear to your website.
No Luck? Use another browser. If you were working with Internet Explorer, launch FireFox or Safari and go to the page in question. Do you see your change? If so then you may need to clear the cache in your default browser in order to view the change there.
Here’s a link to instructions on how to clear Cache for most browsers including Internet Explorer, FireFox, Chrome, and Safari.
