Lynx 2.6 doesn't yet have a circular buffer for the last mailing address
entered from the 'p'rint/mail document screen.  However it does have a 
Find Next feature - the 'n' key.  I didn't think this was a new
development, though.  Are you sure your version doesn't have it?

Even so, there are so many bug fixes and enhancements in 2.6 versus 2.4.x
that you should pressure your local admins to obtain and install the
current version.  Imagine being able to browse through frames and
client-side imagemaps, for one :)  There are pointers to the new code at

Also, the lynx-dev list is now at address@hidden
