... indicating that one of the other rules you failed to mention is allowing access.

The whole list of http_access lines is one giant test "script" to determine the allow/deny choice. Order is important. So is the full set of lines.

I didnt try completely restarting squid yet, but I have a suspicion that
wont do it either

Maybe. Depends on the type of request is being serviced. http_access only gets tested for *new* requests. Tunnels and long-polled chat sessions can continue happily for days unless something interrupts tem.

Squid Cache: Version 3.0.STABLE8<---yes I know its a bit outdated but
it works for me :)

"Works" is not really part of that equation. "Security vulnerability" and "bugs" are more appropriate considerations.
