Actually on second glance, I think this is your problem:

("|cFF%.2x%.2x%.2x%s|r"):format(color[1] * 255, color[2] * 255, color[3] * 255, count)
%.2x does not guarantee a 2-digit result; it guarantees a result with no more than 2 digits after the decimal point. You want to use %02x instead.

For example, format("%02f", 10 / 3) == "03.33333333333333333", but format("%.2f", 10 / 3) == "3.33". So, if your color values are 1, 0.5, and 0 then you're converting them into ff (ok), 99 (ok) and 0 (not ok) to end up with "|cffff990<<count>>|r" which isn't a valid color code. Technically you are producing a valid color code when combined with your count, since 1, 2, and 3 are valid hexadecimal values -- "|cffff9903|r" -- but then you don't have any text to display.

Also, ("text"):format(...) is the slowest possible method of formatting a string. Use format("text", ...) instead:

return format("|cff%02x%02x%02x%s|r", color[1] * 255, color[2] * 255, color[3] * 255, count)
