Is it possible to open the "bookmark display" on a new window or a new tab instead of a sidebar?

When clicking the 'display your bookmarks" button on menu toolbar, it opens a sidebar. I'd like to try a new window or new tab instead of the sidebar. I have Tab Mix Plus add-on installed but I cannot find such option. Thanks.

Chosen solution

this would be the address for the bookmarks sidebar, which you an also enter into the address bar like a normal url:

chrome://browser/content/bookmarks/bookmarksPanel.xul

hello fergago, the keyboard shortcut ctrl+shift+B opens the bookmarks library in a new window.

Thanks phillip. I was aware of that option, but I wonder whether it's possible to open the one that appears on the sidebar (which is an abridged version, with less information/functions) on a new window or tab. I assume the answer is no.
