Um, No, I mean Firefox does not have this problem in contentAreaClick
because it uses addBookmarks2.xul. Calling window.sidebar.addPanel works
fine from content in both Firefox and Seamonkey. In Firefox, addPanel is
just a wrapper for addBookmarks2 anyway.

Um, does this mean that it's not possible to do a "open bookmark in sidebar"
feature in Seamonkey? Or support livemarks?
