(1) this is great, if it means  /  or  n  will work during partial display;
(2) it's not great, if you can't scroll during partial display.
any way of fixing it so it allows (1), but doesn't disable (2)?

i use Lynx to read many news stories,
for which partial display is very useful,
but so is searching for some lexeme (smile)
which characteristically begins the actual text a/a links/ads.
