there's never been a command to move as you describe.
`next/previous link' are usually tied to the down/up arrow keys:
you can change key-bindings in  lynx.cfg ;
you can use your own  lynx.cfg  by entering  lynx -cfg=yourlynxcfg .

look in  lynx.cfg  & the Options Menu for `image' & try resetting things.
there's also advice in Users Guide via `h' .

Lynx still can't edit remote files.
however, default form-edit key-bindings have changed recently,
so look in Users Guide & try changing them in  lynx.cfg .

you sound like an experienced Lynx user, so this is just a quick reply.
try those things out & ask again at  lynx-dev  if you're still lost.
also let your sysadmin know that 2-8-3 should be released soon.
