Thumb and Title not able to float left

Check the option in the Thumbnails panels > "Show thumbnails above text". Then add this custom CSS:

If you use wordpress 4.7 or higher you can add this custom CSS with the customizer

For more layout options please try our premium widget: Term and Category based Posts Widget.

The font-size is different from that of other widgets or Theme elements?

Please use the option: "Disable widget CSS".

I want the title as a link pointing to the selected Categorie page?

Enable the check box "Make widget title link".

Some of the features that were used in that version needs PHP 5.3+. We apologies for any headache this may cause you, but frankly it is better for you to check with your hosting company how can you upgrade the PHP version that you are using, and not only in order to use this plugin. PHP 5.2 should be considered insecure now, and for your own sake you should upgrade. PHP 5.2 is very old and any support for it from the php developers had ended more then 5 years ago php.net/eol.php. We know there are peopel how use PHP 5.2 wordpress.org/about/stats and we can't imagine this people will have no other problems, if they don't update.
