If you want User-Agent control available in Options, add these lines to lynx.cfg


The first lets you toggle sending U-A header. The second lets you
change U-A header.

You can put something like this to get around U-A blocking

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:34.0)

If you don't have access to lynx.cfg there are command line switches
that you can alias in to the lynx invocation.
