Ok, it was worth an attempt.

Not intentionally as far a I know.

Do you have *any* indication that any of the information in your
cooke file gets read?

Do you have any indication that lynx is trying to read your cookie file?

Have you *told* lynx to read your cookie file?  And, just to make sure,
what its name is?

Note that the above list of domains (empty of cookies) may result from
COOKIE_ACCEPT_... and similar lists in lynx.cfg, it does not mean that
a cookie file has been read.
