    Lynx won't "Always" allow cookies?


    I cannot seem to get Lynx to always allow cookies, from any site. I type "a" as in (A)lways, yet every time I go back to the site it asks again.

    I changed the "ALWAYS_ALLOW_COOKIES" field in my lynx.cfg to "TRUE", yet still the same.

    I have Googled, and read through the Lynx Users Guide, to no avail.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Thank you,

    lynx --accept_all_cookies works for me. If you need only text-based browser you may also use links.

    works, kinda- but why doesn't it "rememer me" on a site?

    Thank you, manuhack

    That seems to work, but do you have any idea why when I fill out a login form and select "log me in every time" it doesn't remember, and I still have to fill out the form each time?

    Hi Allasso,

    Did you check if you had
    in your lynx.cfg?

    In my case (Ubuntu Lucid) it was set to false FALSE and the cookies weren't remembered. I set it to TRUE and now the "Remember me" buttons work across sessions!
