OP again. I noticed the thread flying by on the overboard. May as well drop my final observations.
I use Lynx with some regularity for ssh sessions, etc. In the year of our Lord 2018, a fully useful command line webbrowser still surprises the hell out of the Mircosoft wonks I come across. Nevertheless, a 32 bit system is no barrier to a desktop GUI, M$ or otherwise.
The end result was Waterfox for my 64 bit systems, and Icecat for my wee 32 bit on-the-road portable. The privacy tweaking learning curve was minimal and everything is running smoothly and to my satisfaction. Palemoon is a distant memory at this point. While this was an excellent thread all in all, I don't have anything else to add to the discussion and won't waste any more time on Palemoon related activities.
