How do I open firefox and go to a bookmark directly? Typing: firefox "/home/user/document.htm#bookmark" places /home/user/document%23bookmark in the path.

Typing: firefox "/home/user/document.htm#bookmark" places file:///home/user/document%23bookmark in the path. Yet the error message says "Firefox can't find the file at /home/user/document#bookmark." So it gets the path right for the error message but wrong for the path. If I go to the path in firefox window and replace the "%23" with the "#" the file loads correctly at the expected bookmark.

Does it make any difference if you include the file:// protocol, i.e., use a fully formed URL?
