Probably ELinks never sees your CTRL-S.. the underlying terminal grabs
it and does not pass it to the application.
But then hitting CTRL-S should freeze your terminal and you'd need to
issue a CTRL-Q to unfreeze... so I'm not sure..
See "man stty".
You could try to issue a
| % stty CTRL-V CTRL-S ''
before you launch ELinks and see if it helps.
.. or if you don't want to bother about stty, you could also hit "CTRL-V
