All other icons have a gray-background hover state, while the Go To Debugger icon barely looks like a button.

  1. The whole element, that the icon is sitting in, is clickable and has a hand cursor
  2. It only has some slight color animation, going from dark gray to black


  1. (more obvious debugger link) Make the filename clickable as well, styled as a link (similar to log locations in the console)
  2. (quick fix) Add the dark background hover effect

While we probably want to refactor the Events panel in the coming months; this is a low hanging polish that makes it more usable meanwhile.

(we should probably do the same for the "select node in inspector" icon in the console)

Might be useful. It does seem more obvious as it has a hand cursor and is not within a block element that is clickable.

The button (using a div) did not have any hover state before this patch.
While the CSS tried to control the stroke color, the SVG was not set up
for this – also fixed in this bug to correctly use the theme colors.
