I am removing the popcorn ceiling from a very small bathroom. This is my first
attempt. The old material is coming off fairly easily but when I get to the
edges, the joint tape is loose and coming up even when I have been careful to
not push the tool under the tape. Do I have to replace that tape?

Yes, it should be replaced to get a good joint that's even and won't crack.
If the tape is coming off easily, just pull off whole sections of
it and replace. I prefer the self-sticking mesh type myself, but regular
will do too.
