Template Path Hints on new install do not work

After doing this on a default new install, having turned of caching, and reloading the frontend, I do not see any of the so-called “Path hints”. What could I be missing?

1. Go to the admin and navigate to System -> Configuration
2. Select your store in the top left website/store selector
3. When the page reloads, select the ‘Developer’ tab and select ‘Yes’ for Template Path Hints.
When you’re done, go back to the store front, reload your page and you will see the path to all the templates listed according to the block. In order to modify the markup, all you have to do is follow the path written out for you and modify the according template(s).
