editor.css + typography.ccs are correct, both specify orange links.

Link appears as expected on actual site (orange).

However in the content pane the link defaults to blue and the css will not be picked up. I can change the border and background colour of the link however. (as is done with broken links)

For example if I apply the following to links in editor.css

color:#e1663f;
background-color: #00ff00;
border: 1px red solid;

Background colour of link will be updated to yellow, border to red but the colour of the link will remain blue #0000FF.

I have searched for #0000FF (in whole directory) and looked in whatever css files I could find, but no joy.

Has anyone else met this problem and found a solution or am I going wrong somewhere?

Cheers

there might be some other style to set the color, which the browser use other than your one.

try with the following

color:#e1663f !important;
