^R reloads (and redraws, obviously) the page.
^L redraws the screen, this should also work,
and much faster at that.

On Windows this can usually be set in the “system menu”
(the icon in the upper-left corner of the titlebar, though
I’ve not been using Windows versions released in the last
16 years, so YMMV).

Press G (uppercase g) to show the current URL in the
status line, then copy/paste that, if it’s not too long,
or scroll. Alternatively, the V (uppercase v) page shows
it (and your history), and the = page shows both the URI
of the current page and of the currently selected link.

>control/R to refresh probably would fix this

Again, ^L is enough, no need to do ^R, and yes, it should;
this also occurs on Unix.

Someone who knows about this store thingy would have to
do that. Lynx is Free Software, so, just do it.

Stéphane, I actually don’t block Googlemail, they’re just too utterly
stupid to successfully deliver to me (or anyone else using Greylisting
and not whitelisting their ranges). Same for a few other providers such
as Hotmail. Some spammers (Yahoo) I do block.
