Too many years on Windows machines and this Linuxlite is not easy for me to figure out.
Managed to get a network connection working as a hotspot to my mobile phone but for some reason I can't get my web browser Mozilla or Thunderbird connect using this internet connection.
All help will be greatly appreciated.

Look for the Network icon in the task bar once you've got your hot spot going, and have it search for the new connection you created using your phone, then connect to the new network.

If you use android phone please notice that you must have mobile data enabled too. If you want to share wired connection to phone it is a bit more complicated.
