USB debugging is hard to use, we might have to port the "Refresh Devices" from WebIDE, alongside with an indicator that the list is being refreshed.

This could be integrated with the USB scanner status message proposed in Bug 1494549

Adds a "Refresh devices button". I was unsure on whether this button should use state for this or just plug directly into the adb module. In the end I opted for doing it via actions/state because it would also allow us to show somewhere else an indication of whether the scanner is running or not (in case we need it). But if you think this is overkill, I'll gladly change it.

To try it, with the device connected, open and close firefox. If you press Refresh you should see the list update.
