lynx -version:
It gave the version of older, stable Lynx, not 2.8.8 one.
A problematic url:

It is a website to one bak.
My lynx 2.8.7dev.9 opens it properly, latest 2.8.8.

Hi folks,

I installed Lynx 2.8.8.dev9 and noticed that it is saying:
This client does not contain support https urls.
However, Lynx 2.8.7.dev9 contained this support.
How is it possible?

Could you please provide uname -a and lynx -version, as well as the
urls you are using?

SSL (https) is a configure-script (build-time) option.
The version message shows whether lynx is built with OpenSSL (or even
GNUTLS).  For instance:

Lynx Version 2.8.8dev.9 (12 Jun 2011)
libwww-FM 2.14, SSL-MM 1.4.1, OpenSSL 0.9.8g, ncurses 5.9.20120121(wide)
Built on linux-gnu Jan 16 2012 20:10:32
