Major CSS Problem - Post ID 245331

At first I though my CSS wasn't linked probably, but I discovered it is.
However, If I make a change to on my Style Sheet, it is not reflected immediately on the HTML document. I have to completely close the editor and wait a few minutes. When I open the editor back up, the change is finally shown.

Why does this happen? My website isn't uploaded to a server, it is saved on my computer until it is finished. It makes it impossible to build a website when I can't style it properly with CSS.
Also, if I style my page with CSS integrated on the HTML page, changes are reflected instantly. It is only when I make changes on an external style sheet that it messes up.

Were you saving the style sheet first?
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

I simply was not saving the style sheet and refreshing the page.
