The problem of fruits falling off may get better as the tree gets more mature. Young plants may drop fruit because they're not able to handle the load yet. Please see the following articles:

Also check the leaves for pests. For example, mites can create small yellow specks on citrus leaves when they feed:

There might also be a pollination problem. This article is about limes, but the advice applies to other citrus trees:
