(more belated replies - Philip, I will try to send something for LHFB; I think
Options has changed over the years as well)

my relevant lynx.cfg settings:


Do you have a save file, and is it flushed out to disk when you exit lynx?
Check with lynx -trace URL and see if the disk write happens down at the bottom.
I am not sure if you get cookies to really persist unless this happens.
The FORCE_SSL_COOKIES_SECURE isn't in play here - I use it for ebay, or it
won't remember me (their login is secure but everything else isn't, like a lot
of big sites). The COOKIE_LOOSE_INVALID_DOMAINS is for the botched cookies from
these sites. I read espn a lot, although their dynamic stuff is increasingly
client script triggered; I tried to work around the hotmail shut out of lynx a
few years ago but gave up...
