i have a system around the same age except it has 1gb ram, peppermint 10 ran fine on it until i opened firefox and it just said nope. maybe a lighter browser like midori might help but wouldnt expect it run great at all unless you start shutting down services which may affect peppermints ease of use.

could be an issue with reddit or your browser,  at the moment im on reddit, facebook, discord and here on a old dual core cpu and 3gb of ram and the whole lot is only using 1.5gb of ram with the brave browser. 
have you tried loading addons such as ublock origin and privacy badger and see if it makes any difference or even install another browser to test.
if youre on the peppermint 10 respin you can use the web browser manager in the menu to do so

having played with lubuntu 20.04, i too found that theming it is kinda hard. even with compton enabled and opacity set on windows i still cant get it to show transparent windows, only the borders. also applyiing dark themes doesnt appear to work either.  im thinking kwin might solve that but havent tested it out. outside of that lxqt has been quite decent

Can I remove the text from the panel 'tabs' for open applications so just having icons? I have the panel vertical along the left so this would be less cluttered.

regarding this question, if im understading you correctly then yes its possible and heres how:

right click on the panel at the very edge of the first tab, there should be a handle icon there which looks like 3 lines or dots depending on your theme. a  menu list should pop up saying window buttons, on that just click on properties.  in the new window called window buttons uncheck 'show button labels'.

another way is to right click on the panel in a blank area and go into panel preferences, click on the items tab then windows buttons. to the right of that hit the second last button which says edit current item. uncheck show button labels as already mentioned.

im using the appimage of 2.10.19 in peppermint 10 on the 5.3 kernel, crashes occasionally but otherwise fine.  you can download it below
just right click it, go into properties and permissions tab and enable the execution if its not done already. itll ask you to integrate to the menu i usually dont but you can if you want.

try right clicking the icon on the panel and open properties then do a manual search for your city or nearest capital so it will pick up your time zone manually. mine never works properly unless i set it up that way

might be worth his while going somewhere public with free wifi and use their connection to download the iso and copy it to a usb stick. coffee shop, fast food place or library for example.. not an ideal situation but might work, ive done it myself a few times
