Indeed, Jennifer,
Acer did not give enough love for their A100 and A500 models.
The A100 is a decent device, and with 1 Gb of RAM, a dual-core CPU, and the nVidia Tegra 2 GPU, it should have been possible for Acer to upgrade. Unless there was a particular roadblock, such as insufficient storage.

My best suggestion is to keep the latest version of IceCat that would still run on it, and then use at least an adblocker to prevent web sites from hogging system resources and battery life.

Another option is to use the NoScript Anywhere extension. It uses user-buildable whitelists. Fine-grained, subdomain-level whitelisting and domain blocking requires use of about:config, and good knowledge of the very advanced Vim text editor (Vim Touch for Android).

Yet another option is the uMatrix extension.

There is no system-level adblocker I know of that would block ads on the mobile Internet for ICS. Ad-Away requires at least Android 4.1; DNS66 at least Android 5.0.

A system-level adblocker that works on Wi-Fi, is the legacy Adblock Plus app, available via F-Droid.

It is an Acer Iconia A100, and there is no official upgrade to jellybean for it.  There is on unofficial version of xda called Jellytime Sosei that I tried, and it was very crashy and rebooted alot so I reset the device.
