I'm not familiar with this software, but have you tried m.facebook.com 
instead? Also, what if you go into Lynx options and change the user agent to 
Mozilla? Yes, Firefox works very well with the mobile site. It works OK but 
not great with the full site. I use the mobile site a lot and while it's not 
fully accessible, it's good enough.

Due to the complexities of fb, I honestly don't see it working well with any 
text browser for any length of time. If you have a phone, try installing the 
app which might be better. They say they're working on accessibility, but 
only for graphical browsers. Facebook is constantly changing, so it's no 
surprise to me that a command line interface wouldn't work. I would guess 
anything of that nature would be abandonware just because it's impossible to 
refactor for the constant changes. I saw the same problem with Google, but I 
guess there is a command line interface to some Google features that 
actually works.
