lynx in Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS cannot display this web page:

$ lynx https://fundresearch.fidelity.com/mutual-funds/summary/MA2018905

lynx displays "HTTP request sent; waiting for response." and remains there.

Other browsers such as Chrome and Firefox display the page fine.

$ lynx --version
Lynx Version 2.8.9dev.8 (21 Dec 2015)
libwww-FM 2.14, SSL-MM 1.4.1, GNUTLS 3.4.9, ncurses 6.0.20160213(wide)
Built on linux-gnu.
