Automatic project name? (download from url list) & Import Bookmarks (all form one browser)

1) situation:
i`m importing links from a file by pasting them, each project consists of one link/page

problem:
as title offline explorer takes the link, manual editing isn`t useful when downloading many pages/projects.
so i`m wondering if it`s possible to "tell" offline explorer to take the html/website title as project title?
couldn`t find any option for that, if there`s none, is there an alternative way to cchange this later,
e.g. modifying contents.htm with a separate tool which replaces the pure links in the link description with the website title...

one example (for automatic title):
http://www.metaproducts.com/
=>project name: http://www.metaproducts.com/
what it should be: MetaProducts Homepage

hope it`s understandable what i mean.
it would be also nice if there would be advanced rules, e.g. replacing special strings in the title or at exporting the possibility to sort the project by url and/or project name.

2) Is it somehow possible to import all bookmarks of one browser e.g. firefox?
could only find the possibility to import one bookmark, then the next etc.
what i`m looking for is mass-important bookmarks, so i can create a local backup of the websites behind the bookmarks i have.

I think, I can add the feature to import all or selected bookmarks at once. Do you need to create the corresponding subfolders?

yes, creating corresponding subfolders would be nice. as i want to use OE to build a local backup of the sites behind my bookmarks (where i have some subfolders) this would make it easier to find the sites in my local backup.
thanks for your help :)

I just added this feature to the File | Import menu. You can get the updated oe.exe file here:

thanks for your work, downloaded the current version of oee 4 for testing - the feature works really good! :) one problem i`m noted is, i tried downloading http://farcry.filefront.com (option: download only one page with images and scripts) - it works, but when i view the downloaded project in the internal browser some images are shown as missing (only alt text is displayed), when i refresh the project view (double click on the project name) it shows some other images (e.g. some that were shown before aren`t shown now and reverse). however, when exporting the project all is displayed the right way. maybe you should have a look at this, i think it should be repoduceable, if not i can upload some screenshots.

This happens on some computers - sometimes the Internal HTTP server is not fast enough to display. A temporary solution is to uncheck it in the Options dialog.
