This sounds like you may be dealing with javascript (which isn't handled
by lynx). You need to look at the source code of the web page (use the
"\" key in lynx) to see what is happening. You can also make a trace
file to see what lynx is doing. When you get to the questionable action,
type CTRL-T to turn on tracing, then quit lynx after you finish the
action (since tracing can't be turned off). If you aren't sure, feel
free to send questions about that particular URL to lynx-dev.
