There is a difference between refreshing and reloading. Reloading the page just pulls it from the cache. Refreshing the page actually queries the server and loads a copy from there (or vice-versa). You refresh the page by hitting the f5 key, and that works in both Firefox and IE. If you are doing that, and the changes are not visible, then one of two things is happening. You either have an error in your CSS, or you are not changing the code that you are viewing. In the first case, errors with your CSS will cause the CSS to be ignored. Something like using a colon where a semi-colon should be used, or a missing semi-colon will cause this. In the second instance, changing the wrong code will do the same thing. For instance, I will often make a backup copy of my style sheet so that if I goof up, I can restore the backup. Once in a while, I will forget which copy I am working with, and I will make changes to the backup copy instead of the working copy. When I reload the page, the working copy gets reloaded, and not the backup copy. Since I made changes to the backup copy and not the working copy, the changes will not show.
