I used dial-up when my cable Internet went out. It was my backup Internet connection. I basically had the same symptoms you had where I lived in (not that rural though, but on small mountains/giant hills). Noisy copper phone lines (no DSL due to 20+K ft. to CO) causing my modems (even good brands) to struggle with error corrections (could see the external modem's EC(?) light blinking) and sometimes end up with disconnections. I could never get 53k (not 56k due to FCC rules) connections. My good average downloading of compressed files was only about 3 kB/sec. :(

I upgraded v2.26.1 to v2.29 over a month ago, and my history got corrupted and I had to export and import bookmarks.html aftere reinstalling v2.26.1 (still on it). Also, v2.29 had sorting problems with its addressbooks. Thunderbird has the same problems from what I read. There are many QA issues lately with Mozilla products. :(
