You are using the wrong command. Lynx is following your command
properly. Lynx is (usually) built with automatic decompression of
gzipped files. When you run lynx with a URL as the only option it will
display that URL if it can. Only if lynx doesn't know how to display
the file (such as with a zip file) will it ask if you wish to download
or cancel. The command line you want in order to download the tar.gz
file is:
lynx -source "";

If you first go to ""; and highlight the
above file you can see the same difference by activating the link
to view the file in lynx, or typing "d" to download the file. Your
command line above is equivalent to activating the link.
