Could you be more specific?
What version of Mint, how did you install the browser, what is "fall apart"?

Several members here (myself included) have been using Pale Moon on Mint 17/18 for quite a while now without issue.
Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon (64-bit)
Windows 7 (64-bit) (Sometimes)
Windows 10 (64-bit) (Sometimes)
We are our choices.

My wife uses Pale Moon daily on her Linux Mint box. Please elaborate on what "fall apart" means.

That's the total available - not remaining. Definitely needs another GB of RAM or another DE as XFCE is advisable.

As said above you should try Xfce (and/or upgrade RAM if that's an option); 1gb of RAM is very low by today's standards/demands.
Your CPU is also of another age.

The system requirements for Linux Mint 18.3 KDE are a minimum of 2GB of RAM, so yes you either need more RAM or switch to a lighter DE.

I agree that KDE Plasma is a very graphics-heavy DE, and in my opinion, Trinity ("core" or "base" package) + Qt5ct + Trinity's GTK support package (I forgot what the package name is) + qt4-qtconfig + whatever KDE applications one needs = a lighter alternative to KDE Plasma, although some notable downsides would be that one wouldn't be able to use different KDE activities, fancy KWin effects, and certain KDE features, plus having 2 separate "System Settings".
Unfortunately, that is the closest thing to KDE themselves forking some components of their 3.5 codebase to create a "KDE Flashback" or "KDE Classic" desktop.
