I think he’s right that the terminal captures Ctrl-S but the solution 
doesn’t work. Running the command:

    stty stop ^-

before elinks should work. With zsh it won’t work if you told it to 
freeze the tty settings somewhere in your config with “ttyctl -f”, you 
have to run “ttyctl -u” first.

With zsh you can also use:

    STTY="stop ^-" elinks

it changes the settings only for the command and resets them when it 
finishes instead of modifying them for the whole terminal. It works also 
if you have “ttyctl -f” in your config.

It should have worked, maybe there was already an instance of ELinks 
running and the new instance connected to it?
