Ask questionsClarify disabled-pausing state

We did some work, like fading out the breakpoint panels, to ensure disabled pausing is clearly communicated.

Seeing reports like https://twitter.com/__jakub_g/status/1260912327702073347 there is more work to do it seems.

Thoughts:

  • Is it just an expectation to look for icons users might be more used to, like Chrome's; then we should just get closer to that icon shape/color
  • As part of "footgun indicator" discussion, we shared mockups of "Pausing is disabled" warning bar similar to the "Debugger is paused"

Some quick sketches image image image image

I think I actually like the blue one on top best because it's a simple on-off of this button. The red introduces an extra layer of confusion because it begins to illustrate the double negative of 'stopping the stops.'

useful!
