Is there a flash cookie editor for Windows? Possibly something that can view/edit/delete all the flash cookies on my machine?

Also, related. Perhaps wait another few weeks. Tech Note how to manage "Flash cookies" by Adobe. –  Daniel Beck May 20 '11 at 18:43
    
If you want a browser addon, you should specify what browser you're using. –  Daniel Beck May 20 '11 at 18:45
    
I am aware some of the methods for deleting flash cookies including the Global Settings Storage panel but have not seen an app that can view/edit cookies. –  Stevko May 20 '11 at 21:42

The problem is that Flash cookies are stored in binary format, not text files like normal cookies, so you’ll have to find / wait for someone to write a program that can read/write them (which may not happen if the format is proprietary, and would thus take longer since someone would have to reverse-engineer it).

That said, Nirsoft’s FlashCookiesView lets you at least view and delete Flash cookies. Some cookies cannot be read, but FlashCookiesView allows you to at least view the cookie’s in a build-in hex-editor.

Ghostery can be set to delete flash cookies on close.

If someone like me goes here, there's soleditor to edit flash cookies:
