I'm using command line version of Lynx Version 2.8.8rel.1. I was using lynx-current a few days ago I think that matched your version and though I had difficulties logging in was able to do it twice. Why would I be able to log in with lynx-current and not with lynx release? When I did the log in with lynx-current I first hit control-u in the username field since only a single space showed up on the screen for the field. I can replace release with current and try hitting rightarrow in that field since that gets the expected underline characters to appear as well as the control-u and see if I can log in that way. Thanks much, this has been highly informative and I'll probably be able to even help out google accessibility with what I've learned here about ajax and lynx for the lynx user community.

It works for me, had to use a graphical browser to register (captcha). 
No issue logging in and using the site. Seems the user login persistence
cookie is sent with AJAX, so lynx can't store it, but meh.

I am on 2.8.9dev.1 - can you tell us your version?

      First, thanks for the help on that continue button problem. 
      I've been told the webmaster replaced it with a hard link.  The
      problem I'm having now is logging into now. 
      I key in the right credentials and continually get told I've
      keyed in the wrong credentials and get locked out after five
      wrong login attempts for 15 minutes.  I log into google with no
      trouble using lynx and can't figure out why
      is impossible to log into with lynx.  If someone has time, could
      you please register an account and try logging into  It's possible I may be being blocked on end based on ip address but there's no proper
      cause for that.  I'm on hughesnet which is not one of the better
      internet providers in America but don't think hughesnet has blocked for me since I can bring the page up
      on the lynx browser.  I examined the code of
      and it's loaded with all manner of 3rd party junk ajax in
      addition to javascript and all kinds of google add-ons so I hope
      you don't have to do source code diving to figure this one out!
