Changes won't show up when I edit templates

OK... Geez, I'm so embarrassed to even ask about this, because I'm sure it's a total "noob" question.

So, basically, I have a vbulletin 4.0 install on my computer, locally. (Using wampserver). I'm trying to edit the css of a theme. However, whenever I edit any template - in this case, vbulletin.css - no changes show up once I reload the page. I'm assuming this is some kind of caching thing that vbulletin does..... However, I'm trying to make really basic changes to a template (like color changes) and I'm really frustrated because they're not showing up.

I hope I'm explaining this issue well enough. I'm using Firefox, and again, the issue is that changes just don't show up whenever I edit a template and save the changes.

Are you doing a Force Refresh (shift + apple + R)?

Try a search before posting for help. Many users won't, and don't, help if the question has been answered several times before.

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.

Hmm... I think I figured it out. It wasn't a caching issue. It looks like I was only editing the vbulletin.css file... and I also needed to edit in the the "StyleVars" area. Oi vey.

Thanks for the response, Lynne. I didn't even know about a force refresh option, so that will be really helpful, too. I guess I'm still just getting the hang of editing vbulletin templates. I'm so used to creating WordPress themes that tackling vbulletin seems like a foreign environment.
