Is there a way (code) to open a single bookmark folder, if not why isn't there?

I been scouring the net and MDC and other Firefox pages looking for code that will open a desire bookmark folder under the bookmark menu. Someone told there is no code for that. Is or isn't there a code.

I know the code to open the main Bookmark folder.

PlacesCommandHook.showPlacesOrganizer('AllBookmarks');


or

document.getElementById('bookmarksShowAll')


I can bookmark to a single folder too.


var bmService = Components.classes["@mozilla.org/browser/nav-bookmarks-service;1"].

 getService(Components.interfaces.nsINavBookmarksService);

var ioService = Components.classes["@mozilla.org/network/io-service;1"].

 getService(Components.interfaces.nsIIOService);

var folder; folder = bmService.bookmarksMenuFolder; // Bookmarks Menu folder = bmService.getChildFolder(folder, "*Your Folder Name Here*"); var uri = ioService.newURI(content.document.location.href, null, null); var title = content.document.title; bmService.insertBookmark(folder, uri, bmService.DEFAULT_INDEX, title);


Yet not open a single folder directly with code.

Did you try to replace "AllBookmarks" with another folder name?

PlacesCommandHook.showPlacesOrganizer('BookmarksMenu');
PlacesCommandHook.showPlacesOrganizer('BookmarksToolbar');
PlacesCommandHook.showPlacesOrganizer('UnfiledBookmarks');
