Lynx Browser - No Cookies

18 December 2020

To set Lynx to stop asking to accept, reject or ignore cookies you will need to go to it's config file and update a few lines.

First you'll need elevated rights to the file before editing.

Look in your /etc folder for the file lynx.cfg

Edit the following lines:

#SET_COOKIES:TRUE

Uncomment it and set it to false.

SET_COOKIES:FALSE

Then find this line:

#ACCEPT_ALL_COOKIES:FALSE

Uncomment it.

ACCEPT_ALL_COOKIES:FALSE

Then find these two lines and ensure they look like this:

PERSISTENT_COOKIES:FALSE #COOKIE_FILE:~/.lynx_cookies
