How to see Tags for Bookmarks in Web-Extension?

Hi folks,

i have an old SDK extension that was able to query the bookmarks by the tag,
using this piece of code:

> function loadFromBookMarks() {
>     let { search, UNSORTED } = require("sdk/places/bookmarks");
>
>     // Multiple queries are OR'd
> together                                                                                                                                   
>  
>     search(
>         [ { tags: ["commandfox"] } ]
>     ).on("data", function (result) {
>         if (result !== undefined) {
>             jsonText = JSON.stringify(result);
>             makeSearchCommand({name: result.title,
>                                description: "Command " + result.title,
>                                url:  result.url});
>         }
>     });
> }

Now i'm trying to port this to Web Extension, but seems like the search API on
bookmarks doesn't support tags, from the link:

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Add-ons/WebExtensions/API/bookmarks/search

i see only these options:

> |query|
>     A |string|
>     <https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/string>
>     or |object|
>     <https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/object>
>     describing the query to perform.
>
>     If |query| is a string, it consists of zero or more search terms. Search
>     terms are space-delimited and may be enclosed in quotes to allow
>     multiple-word phrases to be searched against. Each search term matches if

>     case-insensitive. For a bookmark to match the query, all the query's
>     search terms must match.
>
>     If |query| is an object, it has zero or more of the following 3
>     properties: |query|, |title|, and |url|, which are described below. For a
>     bookmark to match the query, all provided properties terms must match the

>     |query| Optional
>         A |string|
>         <https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/string>
>         specifying one or more terms to match against; the format is identical
>         to the string form of the |query| parameter. If this isn't a string,
>         an exception is thrown.
>     |url| Optional
>         A |string|
>         <https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/string>
>         which must exactly match the bookmark's URL. Matching is
>         case-insensitive, and trailing slashes are ignored.
>
>         If you pass an invalid URL here, the function will throw an exception.
>
>     |title| Optional
>         A |string|
>         <https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/string>
>         This must exactly match the bookmark's title. Matching is case-sensitive.

Any idea on how to achieve similar functionality?

Thanks in advance for any help you may provide,
Giovanni
