For lynx  it might be helpful to set the https-proxy address and port in
/etc/lynx.conf. I don't know if it works, because I never tried this
option. I also don't know how lynx hadles login/password related to the
https server, but from version 2.2 a workaround was said to be included.

Hope it will work
