Bug Description

"calibre://show_book/Library_Name/book_id" fails if the book is not in the current view (search or VL). Note that it also happens if Calibre is currently closed and Behaviour > Virtual library to apply when current library is open is applied (or if the View Manager plugin is used to the same effect).

Creating a URL modifier to switch VLs (calibre://show_book/Library_Name/book_id?virtual-library=none) would also work if you think it should be up to user choice. This could probably also be used with the other URLs such as switch-library.

Thank you.
