I'm trying to change every instance of a specific color on our site to a different one. I used the Web Developer extension to test it out and it worked great but, when I went to edit the actual style.css it wasn't changing anything. What am I missing?

Are you refreshing your browser as the old style sheet might be cached. Also, you should not make changes to the ectcart.css sheet. Instead, create a second style sheet, say "custom.css" and put your changes there then have it below the ectcart.css like this
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/ectcart.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/custom.css">
If you make your changes in the ectcart.css style sheet, they will be overwritten with updates.

Today's browsers really "hard cache" those css and js files and are very stubborn to load new versions.
If you are inclined to fix that madness, there is a trick here and would be a one time edit and fixed.

Could I also just mention that for one-off testing, do a <Ctrl>+F5 to force a refresh of the style sheets. But for the general public for updates, follow the advice in David's link.

Shoot, I've hit that dang ctrl>F5 10 times and could not get the new css to load in some cases.
What I've done in those situations is view source, then click the meta link to the style sheet, then hard refresh that, then close and go back to the page to refresh and finally see the new changes.
It seems like browsers have gotten more stubborn recently than in years past.
That's why I call it cache "madness" lol.

I only wish the cash in my wallet was that stubborn about staying put.
