As user, I cannot save option changes to disk, so my changes remain in effect 
only until the session closes.
As root there is no such problem.  But I rarely work as root.

I've changed ~/lynx.cfg to have the options I want, but that has no effect on 
lynx's behavior
This last file is read only if somehow you point it out to Lynx, through 
environment variable LYNX_CFG or on the command line after "-cfg". Furthermore, 
it is intended for general, not particular use. For particular use, for 
Options, the file usually named ".lynxrc" is the one.

If Lynx runs, though, somehwere it found a version of the configuration file. 
On the option page there is a link to it from "View the file lynx.cfg": follow 
the link and see the full path name.
